In addition to class changes and campus renovations, the Chadwick Cafeteria joins the change cycle with some new dining experiences.

Culin Arts, which has been operating Chadwick’s cafeteria since 2012, is a dining service provider for cafés, coffee bars, executive dining, private school dining and special events.

The cafeteria now presents an array of meal choices, such as Pizza Villagio, Sweet Shoppe, which offers trail mixes and different candies, and Quik Pik, which offers ready-to-go sandwiches and salads.

Everything from entrées of international cuisines to gourmet deli sandwiches and salads is offered. The salad section of the cafeteria is expected to open soon, and will feature organic produce from the Garden Club.

The cafeteria also provides healthier options with Fresh&Healthy, foods that contain less than 35% of total calories from fat, less than 10% of calories from saturated fat, including trans fat, and less than 1,000 milligrams of sodium per serving.

One new addition this year is the Sweet Shoppe. The new candy section includes choices such as gummy bears, gummy worms, and sour apple and pear rings.

This year, the cafeteria also added a calorie count section where students can view the calorie counts of all food items in the cafeteria.

The new changes brought about different opinions from students.

“The cafeteria has a new, modern vibe to it, and the music is cool, too. I think the Sweet Shoppe is nice to have if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth,” a junior who wanted to remain anonymous said.

“I have always loved the cafeteria for its breakfast and lunch menus. I’m excited for the new changes, and I can’t wait to see what else they have to offer.”

On the other hand, there were a few students not pleased with the cafeteria changes.

“Lunch isn’t as consistently good, but I like their breakfast stuff,” said senior Connor Lucier.

Another student misses the old cafeteria, criticizing the new options, which she believes to be both unhealthy and bad-tasting.

“I think they took away a lot of the food that people actually ate, and put in those gross gummies, which I don’t like very much.” senior Georgia Calhoun said. “They never have good granola bars anymore!”
