Chartwells What's Cooking
Ensuring students receive a nutritious and good-tasting breakfast and lunch every day is vital to them developing healthy bodies – and healthy brains. Children who are hungry or not getting access to proper nutrition very often do not perform as well as children who are well-nourished.

To provide our students with the high-quality food they need to be successful in school, we are pleased to partner with one of the nation's leading school food service companies, Chartwells, LLC.  Chartwells is focused on providing nutritious meals and information about healthy eating.
