Welcome to the Child Nutrition Data Analytics and Mapping Tools webpage. Users can access this page to gather statewide and localized data on free and reduced-price meals, participation, and contracts. Other data requests can be requested via the agency’s Freedom of Information Act process​.  

 Free and Reduced-Priced Meal Eligibility Data

Free and reduced-price meal eligibility data collected each year on Oct. 31 is available through the annual eligibility mapping tool, which allows users to analyze trending data on a number of levels. This report contains self-reported data from sponsors in the National School Lunch Program, therefore not every school in Illinois is listed. (Please note that users do not have the capability of downloading their specific entered criteria into the mapping tool. Instead, the data for each respective school year is available in an Excel spreadsheet form.)

FY 2021 and FY 2022 data not collected due to USDA flexibility in program operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
