Who we are and what we do: NIESC, Region 7 is one of Indiana’s nine individual Education Service Centers (ESCs).  Over the last several years, changes in meeting the state and USDA guidelines for school child nutrition programs have led the ESC Food Cooperative Consortium to grow to 90 districts. This cooperative ensures all products meet the USDA guidelines for child nutrition while monitoring changes in legislature and school food trends. NIESC is the lead administrator of this team, ensuring all USDA and State requirements are being adhered to as part of the procurement process on behalf of each participating service center.
