The Real Food Co

Nourishing Students, Faculty, Staff and guests

We founded the Real Food Co. of Bethesda to provide dining services for the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, America’s Medical School in Bethesda, Maryland. We are passionate about providing high-quality, great-tasting food to our patrons.

USUHS has an important mission, and we take great pride in nourishing its community of scholars, educators, staff, and guests.


Why Real Food?

Our simple name says it all. The best meals are made from great ingredients, prepared simply.  We use fresh, wholesome ingredients. 

Fresh Ingredients

A few examples: we make our pico de gallo daily from fresh tomatoes, hand-cut onions, fresh cilantro & avocados;  we make our soup from scratch daily;  we make our own salsa; we use fresh cracked eggs for omelets, etc.. We are also trans-fat-free.

Whether you are looking for healthful vegetarian fare or a once-in-a-while indulgence of a decadent dessert, our aim is to delight you!
