Food Service

We are proud of our food services at Carol Joy Holling. Meals are served buffet style in our dining hall at the Sjogren Center. The menus are created by our culinary team with the interest of our guest groups in mind. Breakfast entrees such as omelets, french toast, and biscuits and gravy are served with breakfast meats and another side dish. Fruit, yogurt, and hot/cold cereals are available at every breakfast buffet. At lunch time, the buffet includes main entrees, such as a taco bar, bbq pork sandwiches, and Rueben phillies served with accompaniments, salads, soup du jour, and dessert. At dinner items such as chicken cordon blue, citrus salmon, bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. Entrees are served with a starch and vegetable du jour along with a salad bar and homemade dessert.

Three meals are included in all of our Swanson and Sjogren Retreat Center’s overnight packages. For day meetings and extended overnight stays, individual meals can be priced for you. We can also cater meals to you at different locations or prepare a cookout for your group. Pricing for these services can be made by calling Dana at 402-944-2544.

Standard meal times are:

Breakfast- 7:30 am
Lunch- 12 noon

We are very deliberate about accommodating special diets. Please make sure that you share those needs with us prior to your arrival. Should you have any concerns about the menu, feel free to contact our Director of Guest Services, Brent Thomsen at BThomsen@NLOM.org.
