At Chartwells, we look for opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our customers through our steadfast dedication to nutrition and healthy eating. With these opportunities, however, comes a set of important responsibilities. As part of Compass Group, a global company, we are acutely aware of the impact our operations have, both on the communities in which we do business and the environment we share with one another. Acting responsibly is an essential part of our vision and values, and we are proud of our collective efforts to make this world a better place.
Chartwells Goes Green
For students on-the-go who may like to use the To-Go option from time to time, the Nautilus Market will offer reusable containers. The student will pay $5 deposit at the first use. Each time the container is used and brought back a clean container or "To-Go Container Card" will be given to the student. At the end of the semester when the last container is returned, the $5 will be refunded.
Help the environment by using eco-friendly to-go containers!
