Food & Nutrition

The Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center food service team’s mission is to prepare delicious and remarkable food for everyone that comes through our doors. We at the IROEC break the stereotype of “camp food”. We strive to have our food meet the highest standards in quality, freshness, seasonality. Our food combines both modern-creative and traditional Southern California home-style cooking.

We want our guest who comes through our doors to leave impressed, and excited to come back again.

Dietary Restrictions

All groups must communicate the dietary needs of the participants no less than fourteen (14) days prior to arrival. The IROEC is a nut‑safe kitchen with a no‑fish menu. We provide vegetarian options, but are unable to guarantee gluten‑free, non‑dairy, sugar free or vegan meals. There is always a wide variety of food options at every meal.

Please review our dietary guidelines and allergen guide if you have any questions regarding food restrictions. If you do have a dietary concern that we are unable to accommodate please follow the instructions on the dietary guidelines for supplying your own meals.

 

Meal Service

Meals are served promptly at 8:00am, 12:00pm, and 5:30pm, unless an exception has been made by our Executive Director, Event Director, and/or Food Service Director. IROEC does not offer “rolling meal times”. Adhering to scheduled meal times is the responsibility of the group leader. There is no reimbursement for missed meals or head-count discrepancies. Groups will be charged if there are additional guests during meal time. Availability of meals is not guaranteed when requesting at reservation.
