Oct. 21, 2021—CulinArt, the new company that Kellenberg has partnered with for its school lunch program, has improved the lunch service for this year’s renewed in-person lunch periods.

CulinArt offers a wide variety of foods from hot meals to snacks in the mini-market. The hot lunch section includes items such as pizza, chicken fingers, french fries, cheeseburgers, mozzarella sticks, sandwiches, salads, and even sushi.

The mini-market features snacks such as chips, candy, cereal, granola bars, yogurt, and more.

Drinks, offered in both the mini market and the hot meals counter, include, among others, cranberry juice, lemonade, iced tea, milk, water, orange juice, Gatorade.

The new CulinArt lunch program offers a wider selection, faster service, and some tastier options.

Sophomore Valentina Papavero, who’s been attending Kellenberg since the 6th grade, says, “Between Latin school and high school the school lunches this year are by far the best.”

The payment for this service is also well controlled and efficient. It is under a program called MyKidsSpending and is offered to students to allow them to purchase items in the cafeteria from their student ID card which is with them at all times. To make a purchase, the ID is simply scanned by the person working at the register. Cash is also accepted; however, many find using their ID card easier. The ID card also allows the students’ purchases to be monitored by their parents.

As a daily lunch buyer, freshman Maria Contreras loves the cafeteria service. She said, “Using the ID card to pay speeds everything up. The first day the line was really long, but it moved really fast, so I was able to enjoy my Crispy Chicken Sandwich for lunch and still have my time with my friends.”

Sophomore Brooke Bowen, a pizza lover, looks forward to the CulinArt pizza, as she says, “Just about every day! Pizza, a granola bar, and a Brisk. It’s good food, and it fills me up. My lunch period is fourth period, so I don’t want to be feeling hungry at the end of the day.”

The Cafe remains open until 5 p.m. for students looking for a snack in the mini-market, or a place to do work or socialize.

CulinArt, based out of [Rye Brook], New York, is a complete dining service provider which serves 150-plus schools and businesses in 16 states.

What our clients are saying

“Greetings from Washington International School! We have been so happy to have CulinArt with us this year!  The students are raving about the food!”

“I just wanted to express my thanks and give two thumbs up for the updates to our lunch menu. My selections have been quite tasty—corned beef Reuben, jambalaya—and I appreciate that, too! I am looking forward to trying some new items in the coming weeks. Keep up the good work!”

“Thank you all for such a wonderful grand pasta buffet on Friday! Everything went so incredibly smooth - from set-up to break-down. The menu was thoughtfully planned and the lunch was such a treat and undeniably delicious - the best I’ve ever had! I have heard only glowing reviews of the luncheon. Thank you guys today and every day!”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“This is EXACTLY the type of service and experience we had always envisioned for our patients at MSK Koch!  Thank you Chef Ryan for going out of your way for this patient and all patients and staff!”

“Thank you so very much for the AMAZING dinner you provided for the President, Dean and Jim & Marilyn Simons. They really enjoyed it!! It was perfectly thought out and delicious. Your expertise and impeccable presentation and taste were truly appreciated!”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“I wanted to recognize the individuals at the Valley Forge Site Café who have been supporting us throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic.  I have been onsite at least a few days every week since June 2020 and I noticed that the team continued to provide quality and timely service for breakfast and lunch.  They effectively packaged the food to maintain CDC guidelines. Thank you!  ”

“I just wanted to touch base as another school year draws to end. I cannot thank you enough for how smoothly this year went. Chef Felix [Herrera] and his staff made it seamless in a year with lots of wrinkles.    ”
