The John C. Stalker Institute (JSI) of Food and Nutrition was established 30 years ago through a partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
and Framingham State University.
JSI proudly continues the legacy of our namesake Mr. John C. Stalker,
a highly respected and influential leader both locally and nationally who devoted his life to the betterment of school nutrition. As the premier provider of professional development for school nutrition programs across the Commonwealth, JSI is pleased to continue to serve Massachusetts schools as a steward of innovative and relevant education. Take a visual tour of the history of the Institute with the JSI Timeline.
