The University of the Pacific's dining mission is straightforward. In cooperation with our food service provider, Bon Appetit, we strive to use fresh and authentic ingredients by utilizing food in its simplest and most natural form. Utilizing locally purchased and season products, our chefs work hard to make our food full of flavor and nutritious. Menus are created by the Executive Chef with an emphasis on meeting the tastes of our students, faculty, and staff.

For the 2021 spring semester
