Food Services

Sponsoring agency/location: Multiple

All Hospice Houses need a way to feed their residents, within requirements of prevailing health regulations and recognizing that hospice patients often have little or no appetite for eating. Various models are used, from contracts with food service vendors to full commercial-grade kitchens, depending on size and resources of the facility. Usually family kitchens allow visitors to whip up something quickly at any hour of the day. Some hospices have also found ways to extend their food service beyond the patients to family members, staff and even, in the case of Spoons Bistro & Cafe in Grand Junction, Colo., to the public.
