As we begin the 2012-2013 school year, Chartwells School Dining Services is pleased to introduce our new Environments Simply Good program, a year-long schedule of special events intended to encourage students’ to select complete, well-balanced meals. This year’s theme, You Are Simply Good, is designed to help each student find the “Incredible You” within themselves, by showing them that what they are eating and learning as well as how they are living not only shapes who they are now but also who they will become. The Environments Simply Good program continues to have a culinary emphasis that focuses on healthier meal options, especially ones with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins.
This year’s annual theme, You Are Simply Good, consists of five individual promotions to build excitement in the cafeteria for elementary, middle and high school students throughout the school year. These exciting promotions aim to improve school meal participation and educate your elementary, middle and high school students about the importance of eating healthful and balanced meals.
We have 5 individual campaigns planned during this school year:
- Simply Good Fresh & Local – “You are Sustainable” - September / October
- Simply Good Food – ”You are an Explorer of Food” - November / December
- Simply Good Meal – “You are Balanced” - January / February
- Simply Good Nutrition – National Nutrition Month - “You are What You Eat” - March
- Simply Good Flexitarian – “You are Flexible” - April / May
There is also a public facing website for this program, www.simplygoodfood.org. We hope that you are able to follow us throughout the year. We’re looking forward to a great year ahead. We hope that you will support You are Simply Good and our efforts to create fun and inviting dining environments within your schools.
