South Middleton School District contracted with Chartwells, to provide healthy and nutritious meals. Chartwells' team of dietitians and chefs build our menus to provide appetizing meals with a balance of nutrients growing bodies need to be physically and mentally alert. The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act does stipulate the serving sizes, calories and nutritional guidelines. Chartwells' team develops their menus within those guidelines to offer students and staff a variety of food choices. We invite you to take a look at the fresh new look of school lunches!
