Eat, Learn, Live
At Chartwells, we take our responsibility of catering for today's children and young adults seriously.
We know it's not just the food on the plate that is important but a real understanding of health and nutrition too. Our simple set of commitments - Eat, Learn, Live - helps us to educate young people about how to have a happy, safe and healthy lifestyle while contributing to a sustainable world.
Our commitment to delight our customers with great tasting food that contributes to their own wellbeing. We’re proud that all of our menus offer a carefully comprised mix of nutritional and tasty food, which is compliant to government legislation. We also take special care to ensure pupils and students with dietary requirements can experience Chartwells meals.
All of our food is prepared fresh every day, by exceptional award-winning chefs.
Our commitment to enhancing the understanding, fun and experience of our customers and teams; creating the knowledge they need to lead a healthy life. At Chartwells, we understand the importance of healthy eating from a young age, and so, work hard to educate all our customers through our Fun into Food and Nutrition Roadshow sessions. Teachers can also join in the fun with the educational tools available on the Nutrition Smartboard.
Our commitment to a safe and sustainable environment that supports the health and wellbeing of our customers, clients and the wider community. Where possible, we pledge to support farmers by using locally sourced food grown in your area, all British sourced milk and eggs, and in turn helping to reduce carbon omissions through transportation and supporting a cleaner environment.
As well as supporting British food, we strongly support the Fairtrade foundation, and ensure all of our fish comes from sustainable, well managed marine sources! Did you know, we were the first major caterer to achieve Marine Stewardship accreditation?
Chartwells are also proud to support Mary’s Meals. Our partnership with the charity allows us to feed over 3000 children in Africa every year, with the point based meal-for-meal system. The system converts meals purchased in supporting schools to meals for some of the world’s poorest children in the sponsored schools.
