Dining Experience

While many healthcare institutions hire outside catering companies, we are proud to produce all our meals independently and internally. Whether you’re enjoying our “Chef’s Special of the Day” or an item off of our “Select Menu,” our meals are freshly made.

We bake our own biscuits, rolls, muffins, and corn bread, and use local bakeries to supply our fresh bread. Our desserts are prepared from scratch, and our meals are prime cuts roasted in our oven. Fresh soups are always prepared and slow cooked on our stove top.

We offer an abundance of fruits and vegetables, and extra servings are always available. Our menus offer RDA or Recommended Daily Allowance of fruits and vegetables every day.

Our meal program is nutritionally balanced and all nutrients and ingredients are approved by dietitians and meet the California State standards of wellness and nutrition. Residents may request additional servings if they desire.

At St. Francis Pavilion, residents have the option of tailoring their menus according to personal preference. We feature in-room, outdoor, therapeutic, and social dining experiences for our patients.
