Child Nutrition Department

Welcome to Chartwells @ Giddings ISD School Dining Services. Our goal is to provide the best-quality food for each student every day.

Chartwells' menus are built to support the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and use recipes that taste great and are lower in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. Our menus also provide whole grains, fruits, vegetables and appropriate portion sizes for all age groups. We analyze our recipes for nutrient content and food values using a food-base menu planning and analysis program that complies with child nutrition guidelines for the National School Breakfast & Lunch programs.

In order to serve our students better, we offer Breakfast at all or campuses daily to make sure students start the day off right.

Please email us anytime with questions or comments.
