A Word From Our Camp Partners
CAMP FOOD PREPARATION AND SAFETY
We realize how important food quality, taste and preparation is to a happy, healthy, and energized camp community. Tastebuds Food Service brings the goodness of home cooking into camp life, making happier campers & staff by redefining what “camp food” means. Our methodology of food preparation stems from our combination of routine hygienic practices, comprehensive nutritional planning, utilization of ingredients available, and a knowledgeable staff to execute processes. We pride ourselves on keeping a very clean work environment, performing a thorough cleaning of kitchen and cookware upon arrival to camp. When camp is over, we always leave the camp kitchen in immaculate condition. We realize that some campers and staff have strict dietary needs and we are more than equipped to handle these situations. We tailor our food service staff training to the safety guidelines we have established to meet the demands of each camp partner.
CULINARY ADAPTABILITY & OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
When you think of “camp”, you think of a fun, nurturing environment where positive habits, social skills and memories can take root. If you've ever known someone who has missed out on any of those because of a dietary restriction, then you know how limited they can feel. With Tastebuds Food Service in command of the kitchen, recipes and food preparation are comprehensive to fulfill any culinary requirement. We are delighted to handle those special culinary needs within camp so you can focus on keeping camp, camp! We enjoy fulfilling the experience for each camper by including everyone on healthy and tasty meals. Our learned ability to adapt remains an integral part of our operation's success, as we are familiar with the following dietary restrictions:
Vegetarian | Vegan | Gluten Free | Lactose Intolerance | Nut Allergies | Food Allergies and more!
