Online Meal Ordering for Inpatients

Convenient way to order meals for patients staying at Scripps hospitals

Starting in August 2021, patients staying at Scripps Health can conveniently order their hospital meal on a special website and app.


Inpatients and their family members can visit the CBORD website to place a meal or snack order online. You can also place an order via the free CBORD Patient App (available for iOS or Android users). The website and app are available in English and Spanish. 


Ordering a patient meal online is ideal for patients who are comfortable using websites and apps. It’s also best for patients who do not have restrictive diets or multiple food allergies. Please note that not all portions or food offerings are available online. Our diet office staff will continue to help patients customize orders.


All patients can still dial #MEAL (#6325) from the phone in their hospital room to place a meal order. If you have trouble ordering online, please dial #MEAL to place your meal order with our staff. A hospital menu for patients is available in each room with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack options.


Meals ordered online will be delivered to patients’ room during the normal hospital meal times.
