The 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 Evanston Township High School District 202 students. The department is composed of 24 food and nutrition professionals that prepare 300 breakfasts and 2000 lunches per day. ETHS also prepares lunches daily for the District 65 elementary schools, which consists of about 1,800 lunches per day.
The Nutrition Services program is operated under the federally funded National School Lunch Act and Child Nutrition Act. 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 and snacks are well-balanced, age-appropriate, full of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and are low in fat and sodium. Members of the Nutrition Services team continually strive to improve the nutritional integrity of its breakfast and lunch programs.
