LGCSD is transitioning back to paid meals for the 2022-23 school year
Children need healthy meals to learn. Lake George CSD offers healthy meals every school day.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) waiver that had allowed school districts nationwide to provide breakfasts and lunches free of charge to all students expired at the end of June 2022. Lake George CSD is transitioning back to paid meals for the 2022-23 school year for both breakfast and lunch:
Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced-priced meals. Students in New York State that are approved for reduced-priced meals will receive breakfast and lunch meals and snacks served through the Afterschool Snack Program at no charge.

Jeff DeStefanis was hired as the Chef/Food Service Director in Jan. 2015.
Chef Jeff comes from a big Italian family where food was the center of family life and Sunday dinners with family were a way of life.
“Food is more about culture than sustenance,” says Chef Jeff. “Food is becoming pop culture these days.” Chef Jeff resides in Wilton with his wife and three children.
Originally from the New Hartford area near Utica, Chef Jeff said it was those family dinners at his grandmother’s house that initially got him interested in food preparation.
In high school, while attending the culinary program at Oneida-Madison BOCES Chef Jeff got hooked on cooking when he participated in cooking competitions and pursued a college degree in culinary arts at Paul Smith’s College.
After graduating from college, Chef Jeff worked at a plethora of eating establishments, from delis to French restaurants.
In the Clinton area, Chef Jeff owned a café-bistro type of place called Café DuMonde. He also owned The Artisan on Caroline Street in Saratoga Springs. Most recently, Chef Jeff served as an executive chef at Bistro 120 in Schuylerville, and Wheatfields Restaurant in Saratoga Springs. He also served as a sous chef at Winslow’s Restaurant in Wilton.
Thank you to Chef Jeff for making nutritious meals for our students each and every day!
