Our Food

Enriching resident life with great quality, variety and taste.

A main ingredient of a successful dining program is great food. That means a variety of fresh foods prepared daily, from scratch, with the flavor and nutritional quality residents need to live well. This is where Glendale Dining Services excels.

Glendale Dining Services chefs are masters at creating customized, on-trend menus that satisfy different tastes and diets. Practiced in the latest culinary techniques, our chefs take pride in preparing restaurant-quality foods that appeal not only to your residents, but also their families and guests.

We use seasonal ingredients from local growers whenever possible, designing menus around foods that are fresh, not processed. We also seek feedback from your residents to ensure our cuisine reflects their values and lifestyles — including foods that align with religious and ethnic customs; menus that support special diets such as gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian; as well as choices for sustainable eating.

Innovative menus respect residents’ autonomy
