Dining & Nutrition

Locally Sourced. Locally Savored.

salmon, rice and vegetablesEating the food we love—not just great-tasting but food that evokes fond memories and family traditions—is one of the great pleasures of life. At Five Star Senior Living, it’s what you can expect every day. 

Many of our community chefs were trained at the nation’s top culinary institutes and it shows—Five Star menus feature an incredible variety of restaurant-quality dishes. But what makes Five Star dining even more special is a love and passion for the art of food that makes the entire experience so personal and comforting.


A Farm-to-Table Philosophy for Senior Dining

Each Five Star community takes great care to buy food from area farmers and other local sources whenever possible, assuring residents the healthiest ingredients at their peak of freshness. From fruits and vegetables in a rainbow of colors to lean meats, poultry and seafood naturally raised, Five Star dining focuses on healthy eating that is good for local economies as well.


Food as Love, Savory and Safe

During the pandemic, we’re also keeping an eye on safety. Five Star has been able to offer safe, socially distanced dining room options in some communities. Prefer to eat in? We’ll bring it to your door. Five Star offers many ways to enjoy food to the fullest:

  • Individualized dining choices for a restaurant-style experience
  • Meal options tailored to doctor-recommended diet or dietary restrictions
  • Recipes and culinary tips for home chefs
  • Consultation with a community-based dietitian
