Through a partnership with Gourmet Gorilla, our students receive a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack each school day. Breakfast and lunch are cooked from scratch, and Gourmet Gorilla strives to obtain 70% of its ingredients from local, sustainable and organic sources. 

When in-person classes halted in March 2020 due to COVID 19, providing nutritious meals for our students did not. In partnership with Gourmet Gorilla and supported by a grant from one of our donors and the Illinois State Board of Education, CJA was able to offer families the option of having food delivered directly to their homes.
