Sponsor Spotlight: Chartwells K12 Serves Up Community Support

Today’s sponsor spotlight is especially delicious…the wonderful and ever supportive Chartwells K12! In May of this year, Chartwells celebrated 25 years of providing nutritious meals to school aged children across the United States. While Chartwells is present all across the country, serving over 2,000,000 meals a day in over 665 school districts, they are also ever present in each local community. Chartwells has provided over 2 million dollars in scholarships and grants over the course of their two and a half decades, creating a huge positive impact on the lives of students, teachers, and their employees.

NCEF knows the generous spirit of Chartwells well. Each year, Chartwells provides a $5,000 scholarship to a culinary student who wishes to pursue a career in a food related field. Student after student has benefitted from Chartwells’ unyielding commitment to helping students chase their dreams. This year, Andrew Igontov from Milwaukie High School received the prestigious scholarship.

It doesn’t take much time on their website to see the impact Chartwells has made on the communities they serve. Not only does Chartwells provide scholarships for high school students, they also provide training and continuing education opportunities for their employees. According to their website, Chartwells K12, in partnership with DeVry University, awarded a full scholarship to Nicole Beeney, a field supervisor for a school district in Michigan, to earn an Associate Degree in Business. In addition, two other Chartwells K12 employees received partial scholarships as they continue their education. What an amazing demonstration of commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and valuing your employees!

Thank you, Chartwells K12, for your continued support. NCEF would not be able to do what we do without your generosity and we are beyond grateful.
