The dedicated staff of the Dietary/Nutrition Services department provides on-site nutrition counseling, community nutrition education, and daily meals that are enjoyed by patients, visitors, and employees. All staff members are certified food handlers or food protection managers, and all are CPR certified. The public is welcome to enjoy meals at the Norton Sound Regional Hospital’s Fireweed Café.
The Fireweed Café opens at 8 a.m. for breakfast and closes briefly before lunch, which begins at 11:30 a.m. Every weekday, the Fireweed Café offers a fresh-cut salad bar at lunch and a well-balanced main course. Morning meals feature a fruit bar and hot entrée. You can also find a variety of convenience foods near the check-out stand.
A newer feature at the Fireweed Café is Angela’s Corner – a cook-to-order service that changes weekly and offers different cuisine than the main menu.
