Full bellies fuel the best learning. In partnership with Chartwells, the Kennett Consolidated School District (KCSD) Department of Food Services is thrilled to serve nutritious and delicious meals to our students.
Learning experiences that spark curiosity, discovery and a sense of adventure are the cornerstone of Chartwells’ innovative approach to nutrition education. Through Discovery Kitchen, we engage students in hands-on cooking demonstrations and tasting events to introduce them to new foods and flavors. Each month will bring a new, exciting theme that blends our menu, promotions and education initiatives together for an immersive experience in the cafeteria, the classroom and at home.
Recent research has shown that food affects mood in addition to physical well-being. Mood Boost, Chartwells’ newest program, helps students understand which foods can impact their mood and why. Developed for elementary and middle school students by chefs and dietitians, Mood Boost features interactive experiences, delicious new foods and fun characters.
Student Choice gives students a true voice in deciding what culinary concepts are featured on the menu through fun tasting and voting events. Chartwells understands students are savvy consumers with high expectations for the dining experience. So, we stay on trend by letting kids take the lead. Winning concepts are served at a Student Choice station or integrated into the menu as a limited time offer until the next vote.
