Nutrition and Food Services

Nutrition and Food Services provides comprehensive and innovative nutrition and food service programs for our Veterans. We strive to align with the Whole Health and Healthy Living Team programs to improve the overall health and well-being of the Veterans we serve.

Nutrition Classes at VA Portland are free and offered virtually and (when able) in person.

Food Services


Hospitalized Veterans enjoy made-to-order meals from our room service menus that are prepared by our culinary-trained chefs.   Mealtimes are not scheduled so Veterans may call a food service ambassador during select hours to order a freshly prepared meal throughout the day or schedule a meal in advance for delivery at a later time.


Residents of Community Living Center (CLC), Comprehensive Rehabilitation Unit (CRU), and Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Programs (RRTP) also enjoy Veteran-centered dining with our restaurant-style service in the CLC and selective menus in other areas.  The open kitchen concept in the center of CLC enhances the homelike environment as the aromas of freshly cooked meals flow throughout the hallways.
