School Lunch Program

September 2016   

Dear Farmington School District Students, Parents, and School Community:

The new school year is upon us and we want to extend a warm welcome and let you know that Chartwells School
Dining Services has some exciting plans for your school meals programs.  We have a great staff in place, including
existing local team members, to bring experience, excitement and quality to the program. Our mission is to ensure
that we serve healthy, well-balanced, nutritious meals that your students enjoy.  


Chartwells brings fresh ideas and innovative concepts to school dining services. We realize that mealtime needs to
be fun and delicious, built around the kind of high-quality foods and fresh ingredients designed to energize and satisfy
student’s on-the-go.  Together with balanced, delicious meals, we offer an exciting range of educational tools that help
students make wise, informed decisions.  You will see gradual changes with the menu, choices, and food presentation
at all schools. We will be working with administrators, students, and parents to gain insight to how we can enhance
our services.

We understand that although change is good, it is not without challenges and we will do our best to address any
questions and concerns as they arise. Here is some helpful information:

Elementary Program

For the elementary students, we will be following an adventure of fun and nutrition education with the help of the
Eat, Learn, and Live Characters - Theodore, Sydney, & Ava - watch for Theodore, Sydney & Ava and friends on
menus and signs in cafeterias- they are our nutrition ambassadors!!!!  You will also notice whole grain and fresh fruits
and vegetables being offered more frequently.


Middle School Program

We know that middle school students love lunch for the sociability first and the food second. Our level of service
prioritizes speed of service, offering foods that are seen as sophisticated, yet easy to eat. Building on their interests,
we’ve created core stations in an open and inviting setting that conveys energy and excitement.
