About Chartwells:
Chartwells is a food company and food is what we do best!  As we focus on a stronger culinary approach to our programs and menus, we remain committed to offering our students and school communities wholesome, nutrient-dense foods that taste GREAT!  We emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, plant-based proteins and limit sodium, unhealthy fats and added sugar.  We promote scratch cooking where possible and encourage variety and nutritional balance to our menus.  Our skilled chefs and dietitians develop and test recipes that enhance the nutrient density of traditional student favorites meals while maintaining great flavor.  We love food and it is the heart of everything we create!
Great News! We are now setup to have secure electronic/online "lunch application" forms. All families at Reed City Area Public Schools are encouraged to complete on online version to save time. Doing a lunch application online is easy, quick, and the turn around time on approvals is much faster!
