Meals provide a valuable opportunity for our community to come together, as students, administrators, staff, faculty, and faculty children find time to relax and discuss their days. The majority of meals are buffet-style and are served in the historic Villa De Nobili, which also offers ample terrace seating that diners take advantage of all fall, spring, and summer.

Students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 1 and in grades 2–5 eat lunch in separate dining facilities in Focolare and Hadsall, respectively.

Our talented Dining Services staff offers a wide variety of healthy, nutritious meals. Menus are published and made available to the whole community. Younger children eat with their teachers in specially reserved areas in the Elementary School.

The Dining Services team has earned the Swiss Fourchette Verte healthy-eating label, with the "green fork" label signifying that each meal served is healthy and well-balanced. The well-being of younger students is of the utmost importance, and we endeavor to instill healthy eating habits at mealtimes. This includes having seasonal salads and vegetables available at each meal.

We also work toward promoting environmental sustainability and minimizing waste. Ninety percent of organic waste from our kitchens is recycled; all disposable paper plates, cups, and cutlery are made from recyclable, biodegradable materials; and our chefs purchase products with low "food miles" whenever possible.
