Food Services


District 401 works with Aramark to provide food services to our students. Since 1998, the District has looked to Aramark to build a food service program that fosters parental, student, staff and community involvement.


Meal Menus


Printable menus listing the current month's meals at each of our schools are available here. New menus will be uploaded several days before the beginning of each month during the school year.

During summer break, the May menus from the previous school year will remain posted until shortly before the start of the new year in August. 

Downloadable menus are also available at Aramark's SchoolDish website.  


 Aramark's Responsibilities


As D401's food-service provider, Aramark has been entrusted to create high quality and nutritious meals, meet all applicable health department compliance standards and provide expert leadership to build and sustain a viable food service program.

This latter responsibility entails operating an efficient, effective and financially responsible program. To do so, Aramark uses data-driven best practices to manage the program to a break-even point.

Other responsibilities entrusted to Aramark include:

► Staying current with the appropriate food standard operating procedures
► Taking advantage of new technologies for enhanced service and savings
► Meeting important state and federal food service requirements and standards
► Addressing employee morale, retention and training
► Increasing student, staff and administration satisfaction

Besides providing daily meals to students at our five schools, Aramark also provides catering services to the District.


District 401’s Policy on Food Services


Our student meal operations are governed by District 401's policy on food services, which can be found in Section 4:120 of the Board of Education's District Policy Manual.
