CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - Chartwells K12, with K-12 schools in 36 states, is the first to bring Annie's new smart snack compliant Organic Bunny Grahams into the school cafe. A shared goal of raising the bar on food in schools, Annie's Homegrown and Chartwells K12 are bringing organic snacking to schools nationwide.
"We're thrilled to partner with Annie's to bring fun, healthful snacks to students across the U.S.," said Rhonna Cass, CEO of Chartwells K12.
