By sourcing fresh, local ingredients to inspire creative menu offerings, innovative concepts and “from scratch” cooking practices, we’ll keep your community healthy and engaged. 

Elevating the community experience, every day

Fresh and diverse menus, made from scratch

From scratch means we make our own fresh handmade burgers, lasagna, stocks, soups, jams, pickles and sauces. Residents who have made lifestyle diet choices or have dietary restrictions will benefit from our menu flexibility and the ability to personalize – not just customize – their meal selections.

Dining experiences that go beyond food

We want your residents’ food experience to be more than just what’s on the plate. Our chefs put on cooking demonstrations and livestream their broadcasts, conduct home recipe challenges, offer taste-testing events and many educational culinary experiences for your residents. Our Health Bites program gives your residents, staff and family members seasonally focused healthy-eating messages that connect to the foods we serve. And we’ll conduct pop-up events to surprise and delight your community!

Leveraging our digital-savvy approach will bring added communication and connectivity to your community.
