    Is there a free-standing restaurant on the campus for tableside dining?
    • No. 1440 is an all-inclusive campus which means all meals are included. There is not a free-standing a la carte dining option on campus, so please be mindful that we serve fresh organic plant-forward food geared towards a healthy integrated lifestyle with a "food as medicine" approach to nutrition. You will find food here to be a mainly vegetable-based diet with meat and fish protein accoutrements. 
    • The two campus cafes offer limited grab-and-go items for purchase throughout the day, but are not full-service restaurants. All items in the cafes must be purchased separately - including beer and wine which must be purchased from and served by 1440 staff regardless of where it is offered on campus.
    • Guests may not bring outside food or beverage on or into any location on campus.
    • 1440 is a heavily wooded location and strongly advises against bringing any food into your guest room to avoid insects or animals that it might attract.

    1440 does not issue meal credits if you miss a meal or choose to not dine in Kitchen Table. It is not uncommon for Rest & Renewal guests to explore Scotts Valley or the surrounding Santa Cruz area - we recommend you return in time for your meals as you are continually registered on campus from check-in to check-out.

    • While 1440 does prohibit outside food or beverage, if you must consume specialty items for medical purposes, you must consume them only in the comfort of your guest room - due to health and safety mandates, you may not bring outside food or beverages into public areas.  
    • The forest is also very active with insects which are sensitive to outside smells so we strongly recommend that you remain aware that ants and other insects may be attracted to any food or beverages you keep in your guest room or luggage.

    Can 1440 accommodate my special dietary needs?
    1440 offers dining for all guests at Kitchen Table and does not operate as a free-standing restaurant. We source, prepare and serve local and organic vegetables; organic and local rice; grains; legumes; lightly seasoned proteins; and tofu - the majority of our food is vegan- and vegetarian-friendly. We cook exclusively with grapeseed oil and coconut oil. The ingredients for each dish are pre-determined and three fresh, seasonal, well-rounded meals are plated to order (you may elect to determine what you like or don't like on your plate). Aside from that, our team is not able to serve unique meals or prepare items to meet individual requests, nor can we prevent exposure to certain foods since the dining room is shared by all campus guests. For the health and safety of all guests, no outside food or beverages are allowed in any public spaces. Can 1440 accommodate my special dietary needs?

The restricted license with the State of California Alcoholic Beverage Control requires 1440 to sell and serve all beer and wine consumed in Kitchen Table and throughout the campus. No other alcoholic beverages or spirits may be consumed anywhere on campus which includes anything that you purchased elsewhere and transported onto the campus.   
    • 1440 reserves the right to confiscate or ask you to discard any alcohol that was not purchased at 1440. In extreme cases, anyone who violates these rules may be asked to leave the campus. 
    • 1440 requires proper identification (photo ID) of any person of questionable age and will refuse alcoholic beverage service if either the person is under age or proper identification cannot be produced.   
    • 1440 may also refuse alcoholic beverage service to any person who, in 1440's judgment, appears to be intoxicated or in the event that person's under the state-mandated age limit are being served alcohol by any non-campus employee.
