What's Cooking

Welcome Back to School! We have a great year planned for your students including visits from farmers, school gardens, new wholesome food, promotions and more.


Chartwells’ September Food Focus of the Month is tree fruits.  Look for the creative, fun ways we plan to integrate tree fruits on the lunch and breakfast menus, which will also include the availability of fresh grab-n-go produce options like pears, oranges and apples.

Tree fruits are a great item to use when pairing food groups together to make an easy and nutritious snack— try apples with nut butter, plum slices with goat cheese, or oatmeal with pomegranate seeds!  


Since tree fruits contain such a variety, it is no surprise that they are full of various health-boosting benefits.  Tree fruits are high in fiber, especially those types that you can eat with the skin on, like pears and peaches.  In addition, they contain high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, which helps prevent cancer and disease.

Shoot for eating 1 to 2 servings of fruit every day!


Celebrate National School Lunch Week with us October 10th—14th!  This year the theme is “Show Your Spirit”.  This week provides the opportunity for schools across the country to show their spirit for school lunch and the variety of healthy foods that are offered to over 30 million children a day!   Students, staff and parents can celebrate for themselves here in Norwood by visiting their school cafeteria. To help educate and celebrate, the food services department will be taking the time to talk with students, staff and parents by asking them “What’s the Best Part about School Lunch”?
