Chartwells Committed to Ontario Food and Beverage Policy
School is where students spend much of their time and they need nutritious food to grow, be active and develop into healthy adults. Selling nutritious food and beverages is one of the ways we can help make school a healthier place for students.
Chartwells (a division of Compass Group Canada) is proud to be the primary foodservice provider at our school. To help us prepare for the new fall food policy, Chartwells, has kid-tested recipes and reformulated menu options to ensure our nutrition standards are in place. Student feedback has played a huge role in helping Chartwells construct menus that include healthy, innovative options. Items like pizza made with turkey pepperoni, fresh vegetables and a whole grain crust, fresh deli sandwiches, salads, pasta and rice bowls with fresh vegetables topped with authentic, spicy and flavourful sauces. Students say they like diverse flavours - Asian, Italian, Greek, Tex Mex and Middle Eastern and such options will dominate the new menus.
All menus and meals will come with an additional ingredient – value! Meal combos are priced to encourage students to visit the cafeteria for breakfast, mid-morning snacks and lunch. Check out the cafeteria this September and see for yourself how committed Chartwells is to offering healthy eating options to students.
