Yavneh Food Service
On the menu…
Campers sit with their friends in our big, bright Chadar Ochel (dining room). We always have cereals, bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices and cottage cheese for breakfast, and depending on the day, you will also find scrambled eggs, pancakes, french toast, muffins and more. For lunch and dinner the menu might include pizza, lasagna, grilled cheese, fish filets, ravioli. Dinner frequently features:, chicken, turkey, Shepherds pie, spaghetti and meatballs and schnitzel, seconds are always available. Once a week we have a great bbq buffet with hamburgers and Hot dogs. Dinner includes a freshly baked dessert from our onsite bakery. Fresh fruit is available throughout the day for snacking.
Our Salad Bar has a great selection of vegetables plus tuna salad and great salad toppings- over 20 items each day. Everyone is invited to partake in the Pasta Bar too. If you’re vegetarian or have a food allergy, you are in luck. Our special menus are as delicious as our regular foods. And if the weather turns a little chilly, don’t be surprised to find hot chocolate at breakfast and soup at lunch.
The question we most often hear from parents of new campers is, “What if my child doesn’t like the food?” The answer is, “Tell us”. In addition to the entree of every lunch and dinner, there are always many alternatives at the salad bar and pasta bar.
Nutritionally sound foods are the backbone of each menu. We use low-fat, high protein ingredients and have options available for special needs diets. Vegetarians enjoy the daily veggie bar.
We are parents too. We look at the nutritional labels and work hard to reduce our use of trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, MSG and bleached flours.
Camp Yavneh is strictly Kosher, overseen by our full time Mashgiach (Kosher Supervisor). Our kitchen staff is extensively trained on Kashrut and Food Safety.
