Chefs at St. Charles Prineville (Ore.) are working hard to fight the perception of hospital food, according to an article on The Bulletin website.
Thom Pastor, food services manager for St. Charles Prineville and Madras, said the food service staff at all four St. Charles campuses works hard to challenge the perception that hospital food is dull.
“We start first and foremost trying to make a broad appeal, but delicious menu,” said Pastor, a former restaurant chef. “What I’ve noticed roughly the last decade is there is just no reason the food needs to be bland or boring. It just needs to meet certain needs.”
About 80 percent of food served at St. Charles Prineville is for medical staff, friends and family of patients, and the general public.
