The Canteen

The Canteen

A unique school canteen service

The LCS offers a canteen service from Monday to Friday. Chartwells. our meal service provider, is a specialist in this field and offers complete and varied meals, prepared and served on site: starter, hot meal, dessert, "à la française". Nutritious and balanced, the dishes are internationally inspired and include various fruits and vegetables, dairy products, starchy foods, meat or fish. Theme weeks are also organised throughout the year, to encourage the discovery of different flavours and cultures and to make this meal time more festive. In addition, from the 6th grade onwards, students have the opportunity to personalise their meals thanks to the salad and fruit bar provided. Chef Gary Cox favours organic ingredients or ingredients from the school's garden as much as possible: carrots, fresh herbs, onion peppers...

The menu is available to school families one week in advance on Pronote. For your information, please find below a typical week's menu.

Eco-responsible approach

The LCS is committed to a global eco-responsible approach, in which the school catering service is also part. This is reflected in the selection of raw materials, the selective sorting of waste, the choice of equipment (e. g. more economical dishwashers) and the disposal of disposable tableware, etc.

The Chefs

Gary Cox is the head and manager of the LCS canteen. He has worked for the Compass group for over 20 years, and has worked in England, France and Greece. Fernando Damasco joined the Compass Group and the LCS as a Chef last June after an experience as a baker and Chef in Brazil and then in Sydney. Both are very athletic!
