Nutrition at St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s has partnered with Cater to You as the dining services provider to create daily meals that focus on optimal nutritional impact. Offerings consist of a wide variety of protein sources (both animal and plant based), whole grains, legumes, dairy, healthy fats, and the freshest fruits and vegetables. 

Menus are designed monthly to reflect seasonal availability, holidays, and the special dietary needs of the St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s School community. The culinary team is led by our Chef Manager and Sous Chef.  

Cater to You takes careful measures not to prepare or serve meals that contain peanuts or tree nuts. Extensive allergy awareness training through third-party certifiers AllerTrain and ServSafe has been completed by both the Chef Manager and Sous Chef. In addition, all other CtY team members serving the St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s School community receive annual allergy awareness instruction as part of CtY’s Back-to-School training programming.
