Lourdes Academy and Chartwells K12 are excited introduce a brand new partnership that includes a school café full of new flavors, events, and wellness education.
New Menus and Café Spaces
Chartwells K12 chefs and dietitians have been hard at work testing and developing a fresh, new menu designed specifically for Lourdes Academy students that includes a wide variety of healthy and delicious options. Menus were created using student input from surveys, tastings and everyday conversations, as well as local food trends, flavors and produce. The new menu includes:
- Fun lunch options for Elementary Students
- Grab n’ Go items for MS/HS Students
- Pizza offered daily for MS/HS Students
Lunch Prices for 2019-2020 school year:
Elementary – $2.95
Middle & High School – $3.05
Mobile Menus are in Your Hands
We are also happy to introduce you to Nutrislice, our mobile and web app that brings the school menu, nutrition and allergen information all together, right to the palm of your hand. In addition to nutrition information, Nutrislice tells the café menu story with real photos taken by Chartwells chefs in schools, full menu descriptions, as well as café event information, nutrition education and food stories that help students connect the foods they eat in the café to its origins and health benefits.
Download the free Nutrislice App from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) and search for your menus. Or, find them on the online at https://lourdesacademy.nutrislice.com/
In addition to a great food experience, the high school/middle school café has been refreshed with new signage and food stations.
Culinary demonstrations and new food samplings
All year long, students will have the opportunity to learn about healthier food options through fun and engaging activities that we have planned in the school cafeteria. An emphasis will be put on healthier meal options, especially ones with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Students will have the opportunity to meet and engage with Chartwells chefs through culinary demonstrations and new food samplings. Look for more information on these special events coming soon.
From the Café to the Community
Chartwells K12 and Lourdes Academy are also partnering on new community programs for the coming school year, including our shared commitment to anti-bullying awareness and prevention. As a part this commitment, we are introducing anti-bullying training to all of our café team members as well as sharing with students #JustStandUp ! #JustStandUp is Chartwells’ student and family-focused social campaign that challenges students to stand up for those being bullied. Students will continue to see positive social behavior modeled and discussed throughout the café.
