Our Food

Food is the center of our world.  We strive to make your dining experience more than just a meal. Farm-fresh, flavorful and consistently prepared from-scratch food is what our guest will experience. 

Through FarmSource we source products from local farms, food production owners and artisans.  Your Philadelphia University dining experience will include products from Philadelphia's own Amoroso Baking Company, Hatfield Meats, Taste of Philly Pretzel Company, and produce from Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op and Pocono ProFoods

Our food is prepared from scratch in the kitchens here at Philadelphia University.  By preparing menu items from scratch we are able to control what's in the food.  Our soups are made from fresh stock and thickened with cornstarch, our pizza dough is made daily and cooked in brick ovens.  We will prepare items fresh, made to order at Bravo in Ravenhill Dining Hall and Action By Design at Common Thread.
