Health and Wellness

UCSF Nutrition & Food Services prides itself on providing patients and customers with a variety of delicious, healthy options and complete information about the food we serve. Our chefs and culinary experts endeavor to provide fresh, flavorful and wholesome food in a timely manner; with extensive nutritional information at the point of purchase, so our customers can make informed decisions. 

Dietitians review recipes for accuracy and nutritional value, using exact measurements to comply with physician-prescribed diets. Nutritional information is publicly posted on digital boards and receipts, signage, web menus, and our web site. Patient selections must comply with physicians orders, which are included in the electronic record: Patients are not presented with food items they cannot have, and if patients place an order by phone, the assisting staff person has the medical information to make sure patients do not order outside of their diet.
