Chartwells- Welcome Back

Big Changes in the 2016-2017 School Year!

There are some huge changes coming to the Madison Public Schools cafeterias this September. The District has decided not to participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). While still committed to providing wholesome, nutritious meals, the District is no longer subject to the restrictions associated with the NSLP.

Changes at the elementary schools and Brown Middle School will be modest, primarily improved pizza and pasta with more age appropriate portion sizes.

The biggest changes will occur at Polson Middle School and Daniel Hand High School where there will be some great new bread choices including Cohen’s Bagels and fresh baked breads from Chaves Bakery delivered daily. Try these for breakfast or lunch with our Boar’s Head Deli meats, new larger burgers, and daily special paninis. Salads featuring whole grain-based proteins will add to our vegetarian and vegan offerings.

Daniel Hand High School will unveil a new Latin station: Sono, which will feature made to order burritos, quesadillas and taco salads.

All schools will still offer lots of fresh fruits and veggies at every meal, with an emphasis on produce from local Connecticut farms when in season. Soups are back on the menu as well.

Snacks and desserts are better too. We will have lots of fresh baked items made right here in our cafeterias, and a larger assortment of chips and cookies will be available.
