Easy Access To School Menus

Manitowoc Public School District, in partnership with Chartwells K12, uses Nutrislice to publish the school menus to an interactive  website and a free smartphone app! You can access your menus anywhere, anytime! 


Menu Highlights

Chartwells School Dining Services continues to provide the Manitowoc Public Schools with an appealing and nutritionally sound child nutrition program that is affordable to parents, students, faculty and staff. 
  • All breads, breading, buns and pasta are whole grain.  
  • Milk offerings at all schools are Low Fat 1% and Chocolate Skim.
  • Skim is also another option available at our secondary schools.

Family accounts

Family accounts need to be in the positive in order for students to participate in the school meal program. Accounts that have a negative balance will not be able to be used until it is brought to a positive or the student has cash on hand.
