"Having the chance to make an impact on the lives of our students is of paramount importance to me.  We have become so detached from the origins of our food, family dinners, and the like. To work with them to bring that knowledge full circle, and to make sure they have the fuel to learn, that is why I do what I do."
Our goal every day is to make sure that students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than when they came in.

Our Mission:

"I have wanted to work in school foodservice since I started my endeavours becoming a registered dietitian. I have a passion for the community nutrition. I believe nutrition education and healthy eating habits should start with children. I want to help create a healthier generation and hope to make a difference in the lives of the children I work with." 

Our folks make hard work look easy because of the teamwork they maintain.

Each of us is but a single piece of the puzzle that is Chartwells @ Beech Grove!

I love my job because I love to cook and learn new things. I love the interaction with the kids, and to see them try new foods for the first time.

I started working for Chartwells last August since that time I have moved up in the company. What I enjoy about working here at Beech Grove Schools is the students as well as ensuring that they receive a healthy balanced meal on a day to day basis. I enjoy talking to the students during lunch hour to get their input on the meal we have prepared for them. They are the reason we are here !!!

I love what I do because I love kids and it is so important for them to have a hot and healthy meal for lunch. It should be served with a smile and a thank you for eating with us. I appreciate all of them always.

I began my journey with Chartwells a year ago and have fallen in love with every aspect in ensuring children are getting the nutrition they need.  Knowing I am making a difference in the children's lives, even if it's small, means the world to me.

I started working here to work around my kids' school schedule, and I enjoyed the job and I enjoyed the people I work with.  I like being around the kids and their energy.  I like knowing that they've been fed and it makes me proud to have helped make that happen.
