JCDS offers a voluntary lunch service that provides delicious, healthy, and nutritious meals that are enjoyed daily by students, faculty, and staff.
Chef Jim Gruebel works to provide a healthy selection of entrees along with fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain products. JCDS encourages healthy choices for both meals and snacks by educating our students and introducing them to new choices in the dining room.
At JCDS Lunch is an opportunity for connections - an important theme at JCDS. In everything we do, we are connecting with someone. Teachers and staff are encouraged to eat with the students, strengthening the bonds between them. Once a week older students eat with their younger buddies.
