General Information  -  South Windsor Public Schools has entered into a new partnership with Chartwells, a food services vendor who will now oversee our cafeteria program. Partnering with a vendor such as Chartwells is a growing trend among school districts, and Chartwells, in particular, already partners with 23 other Connecticut school districts. The benefits of this new program include a more cost effective model, higher quality presentation of food, more variety in meal and snack selections, an app to assist parents with researching food allergy concerns, cafeteria facility improvements, and access to an on-site professional chef and dietician.


Together with South Windsor Public Schools, we do more than feed hungry students. We improve the well-being of our students by preparing fresh, delicious and nutritious meals they love. We engage students and all of their senses through the creation of new and fresh dining experiences that improve their school day. Our wide variety of menu items, programs and initiatives nourish student’s bodies, minds and spirits.


To extend our passion, dedication, knowledge and enthusiasm into serving each student delicious and nutritious meals. To nourish the bodies, minds and spirits of our students and pave the way for a lifetime of success and well-being.
