Patient Meals

While a patient at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, the Food Service Department provides a variety of healthy food options according to your dietary prescription. We offer daily specials and serve Kosher, Vegetarian, Heart Healthy, and low sodium foods, just to name a few. We are glad to assist in meeting your special dietary requests.

During your stay, the Nutrition Assistant is responsible for providing you with a menu, assisting you with food selections, and preparing your tray. For special diets, the Registered Dietitian, from Inpatient Nutrition Services, reviews your selections and assures your selections are appropriate to your diet order.
