Board of Education Appoints New Food Services Director

The Jamestown Board of Education appointed Jeffrey Smith as the new Director of Food Services at tonight’s meeting. Mr. Smith will begin the position on October 29th. Mr. Smith is currently the Executive Director for St. Susan Center and is in charge of the Food Services Feeding Programs, which serves over 142,000 meals per year.

“We are thrilled to have Mr. Smith join our Jamestown family,” said Lisa Almasi, JPS Chief of Operations. “He has extensive experience in managing all aspects of food service and has worked collaboratively with local agencies to provide meals for the community. He will take that experience to help provide healthy meals for children in the Jamestown schools.”

Mr. Smith holds a bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa. He lives in Jamestown and is a member of the Jamestown Lions Club and St. James Church.

“It’s a new chapter for me because while my time as Executive Director at St. Susan Center is ending, a new chapter is beginning,” said Mr. Smith. “I am excited about joining Jamestown Public Schools and the opportunity to serve as the Food Service Director.”
