Like any other family, a lot happens at mealtime here.

Our students share meals with friends, with adults, with older and younger students – and sometimes even with infants and toddlers. At Peddie, the entire school community shares the same dining space. Mealtime should be about enjoying good food - but it's also about so much more.

The employees of Peddie Food Service (PFS) take great pride in providing the community with a variety of fresh, homemade, healthy food choices, but they also take pride in the relationships they have with our students. They encourage special requests. They notice when you need comfort food (exam time!). They greet you by name. They remember your favorite muffin choice during Muffin Day (celebrated every Thursday during breakfast!)

Head Chef Oleg Babich, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, brings experience and innovation to Peddie's kitchen. Director Robin Wojcik supervises a staff of more than thirty employees, many of whom have served at Peddie for decades.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served daily in the Caspersen Campus Center dining hall; brunch is offered on Sundays and special occasions. Once a week, students and faculty enjoy a more formal family style meal. Between meals, The Grille is open for a variety of treats and healthy snacks.

PFS is sensitive to your dietary needs, and if requested will meet with you to discuss accommodations for allergies, intolerances, or other restrictions.

We make the most of living in the Garden State, where "Jersey Fresh" is the motto, and PFS is able to to source approximately 65% of its food from local farms and purveyors.
