    Welcome to ChartwellsK12 at South Sioux City Community Schools

    Chartwells School Dining Services is proud to be the foodservice partner for the South Sioux City Community School District.

    We are a food company and food is what we do best!  As we focus on a stronger culinary approach to our programs and menus, we remain committed to offering our students and school communities wholesome, nutrient-dense foods that taste GREAT!  We emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, plant-based proteins and limit sodium, unhealthy fats and added sugar.  We promote scratch cooking where possible and encourage variety and nutritional balance to our menus.  Our skilled chefs and dietitians develop and test recipes that enhance the nutrient density of traditional student favorites meals while maintaining great flavor.  We love food and it is the heart of everything we create!



    South Sioux City Community Schools are excited to welcome students back to the café for the 2017-2018 school year!

    With Chartwells K12 as a partner, South Sioux City Community Schools are able to provide students with more than just a delicious and nutritious lunch; SSC delivers the education and motivation students need to live a healthy lifestyle in the cafeteria and beyond.



    We have made a number of changes to the Free & Reduced Meal Applications for the 2017-2018 school year!

    Beginning this school year, ONLY families with students attend SSC High School (Grades 9-12) will need to fill out an application for Free & Reduced Meals.  All families are encouraged to apply for this benefit!

    South Sioux City Community Schools are very excited to announce that all Elementary and Middle School Students attending South Sioux City Community Schools will receive FREE breakfast and lunch for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.

    Free and reduced meal applications may be submitted any time during the school year.  If your student(s) was/were eligible for free or reduced meals at the end of the 2016-2017 school year, you must remember to re-apply on a yearly basis.  If your application expires and/or your family does not re-apply your student's meal account will be changed to "paying" status.
