Welcome to Chartwells School Dining Services for Newburyport Public Schools.   Feeding our students high quality meals that are nutritious and delicious is our top priority. Chartwells' menus are built to support the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and use recipes that taste great and are lower in fat, saturated fat, trans-fats, 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. Our Balanced Choices Meal Program is a guidance system to assist students in making the most nutritious choices within parameters and is highlighted on the serving line.

Please note all school breakfast and lunch are free the 2020-2021 school year.

Please note that  due to the fact that many schools in the state are returning to in person learning over the next few weeks we are seeing unanticipated product shortages so the menu is subject to change.  If changes are made they will be reflected on the district website at

Please check the menu regularly!
