Chartwells New Lunch Information!!!
As the beginning of the school year quickly approaches, we want to extend a warm welcome back to school and back to the café! Chartwells K12 and Lafayette Catholic Schools are eager to welcome you and your student back to the school café with new flavors, events, and food and wellness education that surely to inspire a healthy and fun 2017-18 school year!
Mobile Menus are in Your Hands
We are really excited to continue to put the power of the school menu, nutrition and allergen information right to the palm of your hand via Nutrislice! In addition to nutrition information, Nutrislice tells the café menu story with real photos taken by Chartwells chefs in schools, full menu descriptions as well as café event information, nutrition education and food stories helping students connect the foods they eat in the café to its origins and health benefits.
Nutrislice is available online through smartphones the web! Download the free Nutrislice App from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) and search for your menus or find them on the web: http://lcss.nutrislice.com.
Food & Nutrition Education:
Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to learn about their food and healthier food options through fun and engaging activities that we have planned in the school cafeteria. Through our Discovery Kitchen: Powered by Simply Good food and nutrition education program, brought to the café by Chartwells chefs and dietitians, students will learn about healthier meal options, especially ones with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. In addition, students will have the opportunity to meet and engage with real Chartwells chefs through fun, exciting culinary demonstrations and new food samplings. We will feature a variety of themes and events – look for more information on these special events coming soon.
From the Café to the Community
Chartwells K12 and Lafayette Catholic Schools are excited to share new and continued community programs for the coming year, including an enduring commitment to anti-bullying awareness and prevention. Last year we partnered with Prevent Child Abuse America and high school student Natalie Hampton to bring the Sit With Us app to schools. Sit With Us helps to create a more inclusive school café by encouraging students to set up and sign up for open table lunches. All students are invited to participate and the app is free to download from the Apple and GooglePlay stores.
We are looking forward to an exciting new year!
