Nutrition and Food Services

Proper nutrition is a key part of your cancer care. Our board-certified dietitians at Roswell Park are part of your healthcare team and can help you make the best food choices to optimize your health. Our dietitians are uniquely experienced in working with cancer patients to improve your nutrition before, during and after treatment.

Clinical nutrition, also referred to as medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms through a tailored diet developed and monitored by a medical doctor physician or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN).

Our clinical dietitians are credentialed as Registered Dietitians, accredited by the Commission on Dietetic Registration and are a part of your interdisciplinary medical team.

The Roswell Park campus offers a wide variety of choices for dining. Whether sitting with your friends and family in the Sunflower Café or enjoying a quick snack from Ken’s Express Stop, we have something for everyone.

Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can change your ability to tolerate foods and beverages, and can increase your nutrient requirements from your usual level. 

Recognizing the importance of good nutrition and your general well-being, we focus on providing our patients high quality meals.
