Food Service

Welcome to Chartwells School Dining Services website for Manitowoc Public School District.  Locally in Manitowoc, we serve meals to an average of 3,790 students per day.  Our goal is to provide the best quality food for each student, one child at a time.

Something New!

         Nutrislice Easy Access To School MEnus     

The way you access school menus is changing, and we are sure you 
will love it! Manitowoc Public School District, in partnership with Chartwells K12, is  now using Nutrislice to publish the school menus to a new interactive  website and a free smartphone app! Now you can access your menus anywhere, anytime! 

Menu Highlights

Chartwells School Dining Services continues to provide the Manitowoc Public Schools with an appealing and nutritionally sound child nutrition program that is affordable to parents, students, faculty and staff. 
  • All breads, breading, buns and pasta are whole grain.  
  • Milk offerings at all schools are Low Fat 1% and Chocolate Skim.
  • Skim is also another option available at our secondary schools.
  • Vegetable and Fruit Bars-featuring in season produce and menu highlighted items.

Family accounts

Family accounts need to be in the positive in order for students to participate in the school meal program. Accounts that have a negative balance will not be able to be used until it is brought to a positive or the student has cash on hand.


           As the cost of everything increases-there is one meal that is still a great value: both nutritionally and economically...

School lunch is still an incredible bargain!
