As San Francisco is a leading city in the local food movement, the kitchen is stocked with fresh, organic, and fairly-traded products as much as possible. A variety of food options are provided, accommodating student requests and individual dietary needs. Students have the opportunity to cook their own meals in a state-of-the-art kitchen that has a communal vibe.

Once a week, students and staff participate in Community Dinner, when a group of students create a meal for the community.
