At Eating Recovery Center, Washington, we have partnered with Thomas Cuisine, our new culinary team, who has joined us to provide hope and healing around the table. Thomas Cuisine’s wholesome food provides inspiring fresh ingredients tailored to our patients — and provides inclusivity to individuals with different dietary needs.

We want the table to be a safe place for all; food can promote health by nourishing the body, providing self-discovery, and social connection. In a way, food is medicine, and yes, while we need food to survive, we can also use it to thrive.
