Serving Up Happy and Healthy


    Serving up happy experiences and healthy meals to students every day is our mission!

    Food is an essential part of everyone’s well-being. Chartwells helps students make the connection that their diet can affect how they feel, look, and perform. Students need a place to eat where they can recharge, relax, and enjoy a sense of happiness in their school. At Dublin City Schools, we promise to:

    Serve food kids love to eat.

    With the largest team of chefs and dietitians in the industry working to create delicious and inspired recipes, your students enjoy their favorites and have a chance to explore new foods and flavors. Through our Student Choice program, students are involved and have a voice in menu selections as they sample and vote on new dishes to be included in menus.  Our innovative Student Choice program ensures we’re serving what students love to eat.

    Provide experiences that encourage fun and discovery.

    We believe food should be a discovery, an adventure, and that kids learn more when they’re experiencing something versus simply taking in information. Our promotions and nutrition education opportunities are built on this belief and are designed to provide engaging and impactful food discovery experiences.

    Empower our associates to create inviting and fun environments.

    Our goal is to make sure that Dublin’s students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than they came in. These spaces start with our people. We empower associates to bring their own fun personality to the cafe, bringing fresh and creative ideas. We make training and teamwork a priority so our associates have the tools they need to provide the dining experience your students deserve.
