Pitzer students enjoy menu selections ranging from stir-fry (pick your own fixings), pizza lunches, to build-your-own omelettes. Vegetarian and vegan entrees are available at every meal. We continually strive to exceed the expectations of the conscientious palate. As always, our soups are made from scratch, fried items and dressings use either canola or olive oil, and our tuna is dolphin-free.

We proudly present Bon Appetit's Circle of Responsibility Program. COR takes a macro view of wellness. A healthy environment, community, and menu are all vital to the well being of our students. Look for the color coded icons to help with your items of choice. On the COR board, you will find brochures and descriptions of the program.
