CICS Prairie News
CICS is incredibly excited to announce its new partnership with Chartwells!
Chartwells is a nationally known food service management company that has earned an award-winning reputation for their childhood nutrition and education programs. Starting this fall, your students will experience new breakfast and lunch menus featuring fresh, healthy, high-quality, and delicious options that are cooked with care and passion.
Like you, we know that students who are well fed and nourished will excel in the classroom, so we have been working with Chartwells over the last few weeks to craft a new food service program that reflects the wholesome and nutritious options our students deserve. Our first month menu will be available online next week. As with any new program kick-off, we need your support and feedback to ensure we are serving your children well. Our recipe for success has one essential ingredient – feedback!

Thanks for your support and trust.
