We Got You Covered

Eurest Dining Services
(Buildings 10 ACRF, 10-B1, 31, 35, 45)
To meet the requirements of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) changes that were made in the way entrees are portioned and priced, within each of the Eurest Dining Centers are detailed nutritional information boards listing each item served over 60 times per year for your review.
Some portion sizes have been reduced to USDA recommended sizes to meet these more stringent requirements. In cases where the portion size has been reduced, a corresponding lower price will be charged.
For those of you wishing to purchase an additional portion, an a la carte price will be available. This information is intended to help you, the customer, make more informed choices when visiting the NIH dining centers.
