Food Ingredients and Nutritional Labels
FOOD INGREDIENTS AND NUTRITIONAL LABELS
CHESHIRE, WOLCOTT AND NEW MILFORD WORKING TOGETHER
Cheshire Food and Nutrition Services has coordinated with Wolcott and New Milford Child Nutrtition Programs to provide a site where all the nutritonal and ingredient labels maybe found in one location. Our three towns have worked together to put out to bid grocery and other food items collaboratively to get the best quality food for the best price for our children. The group is known as the Three Town State Pilot Bid since we were the first group to take advantage of a new law where the State of Connecticut will administer a bid for a minimum of three towns.
The link below will bring you to PDF files of food items that are offered in the cafeteria of the three towns.
Note: Manufacturers may reformulate products during the school year, nutritional information posted on our website may vary slightly from the actual product labels and substitutions from our vendors may occur. In addition not all items are offered at every school.
We will do our best to update our list and ensure the content is accurate to the best of our knowledge. If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact the Food Service Director of your town.
You must have a gmail account to be able to access the nutritional labels.
