Pioneer operates three high-quality commercial kitchens that provide fully-cooked meals. The kitchen in Tacoma serves many of our residential programs, affordable meal options to other nonprofit organizations, prepared food for restaurants in the Puget Sound region and work experience for our trainees. The new kitchen in Bellingham currently prepares meals for the Whatcom County Crisis Stabilization Center and is looking to expand services, and our kitchen in Spokane serves residential reentry centers and soon will be expanding to serve housing programs.

Our food services division is licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture as a food processor that allows us to process, package and sell the food in retail locations. All kitchen have state-of-the-art equipment for preparing, cooking and fast-chilling ready-to-eat foods. The Tacoma kitchen provides more than 1,000 meals a day for extended care facilities, day nutrition centers and residential reentry facilities in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties.

The meals are prepared and delivered to our clients seven days a week / 365 days a year. Pioneer also provides on-site cooking staff for Harrison House senior housing facility in Kent.

Five-week menu cycles have been developed for our programs. The menus are checked by a certified nutritionist who is contracted by Pioneer. The nutritionist certifies that our menus comply with the Washington State and federal nutritional requirements to ensure all meals meet with the nutritional and dietary needs of the clients we serve. Trained diet aides are also on staff to accommodate special diet needs to include:

  • Soft mechanical (chewing difficulty)
  • Diabetic Diet
  • Gluten Free
  • Low Sodium
  • Kosher foods
  • Other diet needs by request

Onsite training for your kitchen staff can be provided by Pioneer upon request for proper heating, portioning and serving of the meals. Safe food handling and food storage techniques can also be discussed with your staff.
