Our well thought out menus offer students and staff a well-balanced, healthy selection, supporting high performance athletes in a demanding academic environment.
We incorporate homestyle comfort food favorites with a splash of ethnic-focused themed menus and a touch of young adult favorites. To minimize the use of processed or manufactured ingredients we prepare the majority of our menu items from scratch ranging from soups, salads, entrees, sauces and desserts.
Some of our featured homemade items include our signature SMS Chili and weekly rotating freshly made soups. Our very popular 40+ item salad bar includes hummus, pickled beets, scratch made pickles, baby bok choy kimchi, assorted ancient grains & legume salads, with many other fresh items every week. All salad bar items are made in house with our own recipes! In addition, we include a wide variety of fresh vegetables, carbohydrates and proteins providing our athletes and staff with the fuel they need for nutrition, performance and recovery.
Fresh baked bread is frequently featured at dinner made with our own sourdough starter using better for you unbromated and unbleached flour. Home-made cookies and other scratch-made desserts top it off, balanced with plenty of fresh fruit. Whenever possible and based on seasonal availability ingredients are sourced from local and regional suppliers.
To address allergen concerns or restricted diets, we are most successful when working with students individually to meet their specific needs. We minimize many common allergy-related ingredients in our cooking automatically. Our menu offers many gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegan and vegetarian options to the best of our ability and within what products are available.
We do not use any nuts or nut oils in any of our food and prefer to use healthier high linoleic oils in all of our recipes. To reduce and sometimes eliminate gluten, a favorite ingredient of ours to use is garbanzo bean flour, which we use in many dishes. We also use rice flour and natural plant-based thickeners for gravies, soups and sauces. We always carry a wide variety of gluten-free items that are available at each meal period. For those that have lactose related allergies, we also carry rice milk, oat milk, almond milk, and coconut milk as well as other ingredients.
