ALL STUDENTS MEALS ARE FREE FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR!
We are thrilled to be back serving your child for the 2021-2022 school year! After adapting our service last year, we will continue with breakfast in the classroom at the elementary level, with lunch in the cafe. At the secondary level, breakfast and lunch will be available in the cafe. To kick off the new year, we wanted to share a few things you and your child can look forward to when it comes to mealtime.
Lunch is FREE for ALL Students in the 2021-2022 School Year!
Thanks to flexibilities provided by the USDA’s National School Lunch Program, students will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and lunch at no cost throughout the academic year. Students must select a meal which meets USDA guidelines and include a fruit or vegetable with their meal for it to count towards the free meal. A la Carte items are available for purchase.
Food Kids Love to Eat
Chartwells’ team of chefs and dietitians are working to bring even more variety to our menus featuring new recipes with kid approved foods. This year we’re serving up:
- Theme Meals: Students can look forward to special theme meals and activities during lunch service, allowing students to explore new foods while having fun during lunch.
Programs that Encourage Fun and Discovery
Chartwells continues to inspire healthy eating habits and spark a culinary curiosity to last a lifetime through fun and engaging programs.
- Discovery Kitchen:Designed to make nutrition education fun and entertaining, Chartwells chefs and dietitians have worked together to create curriculums that get kids cooking, trying new foods, and learning about what they’re eating.
- Student Choice:Giving middle and high school students a voice in deciding what food concepts are featured and new menu items that will be available; Student Choice brings the latest food trends to school menus.
- Mood Boost:This innovative program helps elementary and middle school students connect what they eat with how they feel. It features recipes and characters that focus on six moods: Smart, Happy, Confident, Alert, Strong and Calm.
Through sharing our passion for great tasting food, instilling a desire for food discovery, and most importantly, providing nourishing meals, we’re excited to continue serving up happy and healthy to your children in the year ahead. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (810) 676-1112.
