Cedarkirk offers full food service, providing delicious, home-cooked meals for groups who request them. We consider sharing food and fellowship around the table to be one of the foundations of our ministry. To that end, all of our meals are served family style with a volunteer from each table picking up the tray of hot food from the serving hall. Our meals are served in the upstairs and downstairs dining rooms of Cedar Lodge, with three meals typically served promptly at 8:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 5:30 pm. On Fridays, dinner begins at 7:00 pm to accommodate weekend travelers. Meal times can be adjusted under certain circumstances to better suit your group’s needs. A staff member will be present at each meal to explain our dining procedures and ensure that your group’s needs are met.
Start your day with comfort food staples, such as biscuits and gravy or pancakes, as well as continental breakfast items like cereal and fresh fruit. Gooey, homemade cinnamon rolls are available upon request. Our lunch options range from chicken wraps to casseroles, with classic favorites such as tacos and sub sandwiches as well. Dinners include meat entree (guest favorites include meatloaf and oven-baked chicken), a vegetable, a starch, and our famous homemade dinner rolls. Lunches and dinners also include either a salad bar containing a variety of fresh vegetables and toppings for large groups or a bowl of salad at your table for smaller groups.
We are happy to accommodate most dietary requests such as Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Vegetarian, and most allergies with advance notice. We cannot accommodate vegan diets, so we recommend vegan guests bring their own food to supplement their meals with. Our policy is to provide the usual meal for the group as a whole with an alternative for the individuals who need one. When making arrangements for your group, please coordinate these requests with our Event Coordinator as soon as possible. In some cases, guests may be asked to bring alternative options if we are unable to accommodate a special request. If your group has a large number of dietary restrictions or your entire group has the same need, our food service director will be happy to speak with you to see if we can accommodate your group’s needs or not.
We can also provide a variety of snack options for your group, such as muffins and coffee for morning meetings, s’more ingredients for a campfire, and communion elements for worship services. Several buildings also have kitchen facilities available for guest use. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our Event Coordinator. We look forward to welcoming you to our table.
