Food & Nutrition
Challenges This Year
The School District of Janesville Nutrition Department is experiencing supply-chain interruptions due to limited product availability, nation-wide transportation challenges, and supplier's labor shortages. Please know our department is working diligently to minimize the effect this may have on our students. Product shortages will remain until the supply-chain stabilizes. Menu changes are highly likely during these times. All students will continue to be offered meals that meet USDA menu requirements, nutrition standards, and are student preferred options.
Menu Changes are highly likely
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Did You Know?
- The School lunch program began in the 1940’s as a matter of National Security when many of our young men could not pass their army physical due to malnutrition.
- The USDA Food program was initiated to help farmers who could not sell all of their crops at market.
- The same food products you buy at the grocery store are often the same commodity items we use. The amount of food we receive from the commodity program is based upon the number of students to whom we served lunch during the previous school year.
- Federal funding for child nutrition programs is included in the annual agriculture appropriations bill. Generally more than $10 billion, 50 percent comes from general revenues (taxes) and the other 50 percent from Section 32 of the Agriculture Adjustment Act of 1935, which allocates 30 percent of all import duties to the Ag. Department.
