Food Service Meal Information


Darien District 61 Food Service is a self-operating Satellite food service program.  In a Self-Operating  program all food is prepared at a central kitchen and transported to school locations for service.  For District #61, all food is being prepared at Eisenhower Junior High and transported daily to both Lace and Mark DeLay Schools to be served to the students.

All the meals served meet the National School Breakfast and Lunch program requirements.  We encourage students to explore new food choices on the monthly menu.

Darien SD 61 participates in the National School Lunch Program following the nutritional requirements for all meals and the “Smart Snack” requirements for all ala carte items served in the cafeterias.

Payment for Student Meals – 

Student meal account payments can be made on Skyward Family Access with a credit card and will give the parent/guardian access to monitor the student purchases and meal account balance for a positive balance to continue purchasing.  Cash payments can be made as well at the school cafeterias.
