Nutrition & Food Services

Patients can expect homemade, well-balanced and nutritious food while staying at Whitehorse General Hospital. We offer a variety of soups, salads, hot meals, sandwiches, desserts, drinks and snacks.

Our menu is changed daily to serve a variety of fresh foods, including special diets (vegetarian and diabetic, for example) as well as traditional food for our First Nations patients. We also use local potatoes, carrots, cabbage and beets, when in season.
