Community Consolidated School District 59 has partnered with Organic Life to provide quality, nutritious, and satisfying meals to our students. Organic Life is a leading provider of healthy meals in the state of Illinois.

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand! The School Nutrition Department and Organic Life are a team made up of food and nutrition professionals who are dedicated to students’ health, well being, and ability to learn. Students are provided a variety of appealing food and beverages that are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines and meet student health and nutrition needs.

Four entrees are offered daily at the elementary and junior highs. Two of the menu entrees offered include vegetarian options. The menu includes protein, grain, vegetable, fruit, and dairy. Entrees are accompanied by the appropriate choices of sides plus milk options.

A breakfast program is also provided at all fourteen (14) District schools. The School Breakfast Program (SBP) operates in the same manner as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Breakfasts served to students must also meet all nutritional requirements.

Please select the below link for your child’s menu at school. This information can also be found on each school’s website under “Breakfast and Lunch Menu.”

National School Lunch Program

Community Consolidated School District 59 participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)and is subject to the requirements of this federally assisted program that provides nutritionally balanced meals for all students.

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program established under the National School Lunch Act that provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free meals to students each school day.  It is administered at the federal level by the USDA and at the state level by ISBE.

All children may receive a meal through the NSLP.  Children from families with incomes at or below 130 percent of the poverty level are eligible for free meals.  Those with incomes between 130 and 185 percent of the poverty level are eligible for reduced price meals. Meals are also available at the paid price for all children who do not qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

All children participating in the Lunch and Breakfast Program must select the required components in order for their meal to qualify as complete.  For a lunch to qualify as complete, a student must select a fruit or a vegetable plus two additional components. For breakfast, a student must select at least three items including one fruit.  If a complete meal is not selected students are charged the a la cart price for each item.


Free and Reduced Meals


Student Meal Accounts

A computerized system permits each child to have a personal meal account.  As the child proceeds through the service line the amount of the meal is deducted from their personal account using an ID card.


Making Meal Account Deposits

Parents are required to make advanced periodic deposits into their child’s meal account to eliminate cash handling and to avoid lunch line delays. No cash is allowed in line.

To make a deposit using a credit card, you can use My MealTime Online.  My MealTime Online also permits parents to view their child’s purchase history and their current balance.  Convenience fees apply.

If you prefer, you can simply send cash or check to school in an envelope marked “Lunch Deposit” with the child’s name, ID number and amount of deposit.  Checks should be made payable to School District 59.
