Nutrition

SKD_7785

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. Deliveries continued throughout the balance of spring, summer and into the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
