About Alice's Café

It looks like a simple small plate lunch, but research, culinary talent, and hard work has gone into creating food to heal the body and soul. An example: The Nutrition Services team recently transformed a hummus plate into fresher tasting, lower sodium meal by using green chickpeas instead of brown.

“The food at Alice Peck Day isn’t industrial, hospital food,” said Shawn Richardson, director of Nutrition & Environmental Services at APD. “Our team has more than 50 years of experience in fine dining restaurants, hotels and health care.”

If you’ve ever tried the soup, as an APD patient or visitor, you’ll know exactly what Richardson means. Fresh, local Gouda cheese adds a tasty twist to the traditional cheddar broccoli soup recipe. Alice’s Beef Stew is made with Vermont grown, grass-fed beef and cooked in a crock pot.

“We make all our soups fresh and in house,” Richardson said.

Nutrition Services is committed to providing homemade, nutritious food for patients, staff, and visitors. APD follows the Mediterranean diet with foods providing a rich source of vitamins, fiber, minerals, healthy fats, and phytochemicals. Richardson’s team also purchases the freshest, cleanest ingredients, such as cheese, vegetables, milk, and meat from local farms and producers.
