MVCSD WELCOMES NEW FOOD SERVICES DIRECTOR

Posted August 30 at 1:05pm

A new Food Services Director, Marilyn DiGregorio, is busy preparing lunch menus and excited to bring her experience and positive disposition to her new team at Minisink Valley. No stranger to her new role, Mrs. DiGregorio was an assistant food services director in Westchester for four years, first with the Bedford Central School District, and more recently with Ossining Union Free School District.  

 

An Orange County native and a graduate of John S. Burke Catholic High School in Goshen, she was eager to start work after high school and was very successful in the retail industry as store manager and trainer.  After her daughter was born, the retail hours interfered with the demands and commitments of her young family.  As a result, she chose to do what she was born to do--work in the food industry. Mrs. DiGregorio’s family has owned and operated a restaurant/pizzeria for over 30 years.
