Whitsons is committed to providing wholesome, high quality menus, made from locally sourced ingredients whenever available and in season. We prepare our menu items fresh from scratch daily, cooking directly on site at your facility. We utilize time-tested recipes developed by our research chefs and customize our menus based on your specific dietary requirements. We can provide a wide range of therapeutic menus, which are nutrient analyzed and reviewed by our team of nutritionists and R.D.s.

 

We appreciate that food often represents more than simply nourishment for our customers.

We want to weave our dining services into the fabric of your community and become a significant source of enjoyment for your residents.
