Nutritional Services/Cafeteria

Delicious, healthy, well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery as well as your ongoing health. Our registered dietitian provides 1:1 nutritional consultations with both inpatients and outpatients.

For our inpatients, BCMH has an excellent reputation for providing outstanding meals. Our nutritional services team provides meals prepared according to your doctor's orders.

You will be visited each day by a member of our Food and Nutrition team, who will introduce our services, provide a selective menu, assist with meal selection and deliver meals and snacks to you throughout the day. Your menu will be picked up by a member of the Nutritional Services staff, or you may leave it on your meal tray.

If you miss a meal because you were receiving a medical test, or you were not admitted to your room until after a mealtime, we offer food service between meals, so that you can always receive a warm or cold food tray. To do so, notify the nurse in charge of your care.

You may expect to be served:

Breakfast: 7:30am - 9:00am
Lunch: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Dinner: 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Guest Meals

One guest tray per meal will be provided to parents/sitters of patients aged 15 years and under, as well as to sitters for patients requiring physician-ordered 24-hour care.

Purchased guest meals are limited to one per patient and are delivered with the patient's meal. Meals must be purchased ahead of time in the Business Office.


The BCMH cafeteria is located next to the fireplace in the lobby and is open daily for breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.; lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; and dinner from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome to eat in the cafeteria. Our cafeteria features a variety of hot and cold entrees as well as a soup and salad bar that always has fresh fruit and special salads.

We purchase some of our meat from a local packing plant. We also purchase fresh fruit & vegetables when available and in season from a local farmers market.

Complimentary coffee and tea are available throughout each day.

Vending machines are located adjacent to the cafeteria and are available 24 hours a day.
