Our staff is passionate about food and serving our guests in our community. We make our community a priority through partnering with our students on specialty evenings, creating menus based on student input every week, connecting with our local artisans, ranchers and farmers to bring seasonal ingredients to our café. We do this in a socially responsible manner for the betterment of our students and our community.
Bon Appétit at George Fox University is fighting food waste and hunger by recovering surplus perishable food from our campus that would otherwise go to waste and donating it to people in need through Bruin Community Pantry at George Fox.

Treat Yourself (and People in the Supply Chain) Right
Here are five ways to get a little #selfcare and feel good about doing it.
STEPPING OUT: STAYING WELL AS YOU VENTURE OUT TO EAT
As some areas of the country start to open up, eating out (safely) may be back on the table. Here are a few things to look for when eating away from home.
When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
Good nutrition is more than just the numbers.
Healthy eating patterns are a result of skills and strategies for managing all types of food…despite the numbers. Knowing the nutritional values of some basic foods can help you learn which foods provide too much or too little of the nutrients that concern you. Bon Appétit has compiled this guide of common nutritional values for many of the basic offerings you will find in our cafés. The numbers here are based on standard nutrient values for these types of foods.
