Food Service

LJCDS partners with SAGE Dining Services® to offer high-quality nutritious meals for our students in kindergarten and Grades 1–12.
Mealtime at school is an important part of the student life experience. The all-inclusive lunch offers a variety of allergen-free options and plenty of healthy choices every day. From fresh salads to sandwiches to hot entrees, everything is homemade and fresh.

Lunches will be available and delivered to students in kindergarten and Grades 1–12 in their cohorts. Parents/students will have an opportunity to pre-order lunch. SAGE Dining Services® remains committed to providing a variety of quality and healthy options that accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions.

SAGE is offering three types of entrées: hot foods, cold sandwiches and salads. Click here to learn more about SAGE’s COVID-19 Core Standards for the community-inclusive operations.

SAGE has implemented additional inspections and precautionary measures of the facility and food preparations to ensure the health and safety of all community members. All SAGE employees are ServSafe® COVID-19 certified and will undergo daily temperature and wellness checks.  

Students have the option to bring their own lunch to campus. We kindly ask parents not to send any food into school for their children to share with others, e.g. birthday cakes or class snacks, until further notice. Individual snacks for children are, of course, still permitted. Please avoid bringing products with peanuts and tree nuts. 

Visit the LJCDS/SAGE website for more information.

Lunch is included in tuition for students in kindergarten and Grades 1-12. Students may also opt to bring lunch from home.
