Food Service at Country Day

La Jolla Country Day School (LJCDS) partners with SAGE Dining Service to offer high-quality nutritious meals for our students from Grades 1–12.
Sage Dining Services is committed to serving the freshest food, sourcing local ingredients when possible and cooking primarily from scratch.

The SAGE Spotlight Program® helps students make informed decision. Color-coded dots, marking variety, balance and moderation, are assigned to all menu items to help guide student decisions. LJCDS's lunch program encourages a healthy relationship with food that is both fun and nutritious. Learn more about nutrition with SAGE.
