Welcome to the 


childeatsappleThe Northern Illinois Independent Purchasing Cooperative (NIIPC) began in 1995 through the joint effort of eleven charter districts ranging from 500 students to 40,000 students.  We represent preschools through high school offering comprehensive food service programs that include breakfast, lunch, before and after school snacks, vending, concessions and catering.

We are a group of school nutrition professionals, some with many years experience in the industry and some with fresh, new ideas brought from other industries and experiences. We have built strong relationships with our distributors and have become a vital presence in the food service industry.
