Unit 5 Food & Nutrition Services

The Food and Nutrition Services Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality food and service in an effort to enhance the overall health and well-being of Unit 5 students. Our meal programs operate under the federally funded School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program. The federal laws regulating Nutrition Services programs are administered by the United States Department of Agriculture through the Illinois Department of Education. This ensures that meals are well-balanced, age-appropriate, full of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and are low in fat and sodium. 

The links located on the left-hand side of this page provide information about your family's food service account and meals offered at your student's school.  Please contact the Food & Nutrition Services Department at (309) 557-4437 for more information.
