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 Focalare and Hadsall, respectively.
Approximately 10 times per year, High School students and faculty gather in their Advisor groups for a formal family-style dinner. Each of these meals has a timely theme (Oktoberfest, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chinese New Year, etc.) and is served by student volunteers.
Our talented Dining Services staff offers a wide variety of healthy, nutritious meals. Menus are published in both English and Italian each month and made available to the whole community.
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.
