The Denver Jewish Day School lunch program is a delicious, nutritious, convenient, and kosher hot lunch program every day of the week.
Most meals are prepared by Culinary Masters in an onsite kitchen located adjacent to our Strear Family Gymnasium in the Upper Division. Brooklyn Pizza is an additional lunch provider.
Kindergarten through fourth grade students eat lunch in the Lower Division lunchroom and students in fifth through 12th grades eat lunch in the Upper Division Lowinger Family Commons, where lunch is served buffet-style.
In an effort to provide healthier, well-balanced lunches sugary desserts are served only on Tuesdays. On other days of the week, a fruit dessert is provided.
Lunch options vary by grade.
For more information about the Denver JDS lunch program, please contact Lunch Coordinator Ori Bieder.
