That’s why, instead of cutting corners, we cook everything from scratch using fresh ingredients – right down to the tomato sauce! We've been running the on-site kitchen at Bellwood Health Services in Toronto for 4+ years. Here we've seen first-hand the impact that quality food has on the experiences of clients receiving treatment.
Mealtimes become a highlight for clients and staff alike. They come out of their rooms and connect over comforting dishes made with love and care."
Head of Wellness Kitchen Partnerships
Kim and her team have been a huge game changer at Bellwood Health Services where she has fed our clients and staff for a few years now. The food ME & JULIO prepares is not only nutritious and well-balanced but absolutely and consistently beyond delicious. Their expansive repertoire of both go-to comfort foods and avant-garde, trendy selections appeal to the wide and varied palates of our clientele and staff.
Many of the people we take care of have never been loved, nurtured or well fed. When people come for treatment to Bellwood for their mental health and addiction problems, they’re often in poor health, feel hopeless and are sad. Treatment is about building strength, finding hope and learning to love yourself. The food ME & JULIO feeds our clients is a HUGE part of their recovery.
The food they eat is an important part of rebuilding their health, gaining confidence, and comforting their soul. ME & JULIO’s staff is compassionate, kind and very respectful. They are critical partners in the success of our work at Bellwood and are important team members. We love ME & JULIO and couldn’t do this without them."

What Me & Julio Can Do For Your Facility
Give your testimonials some extra glow. Our partners receive rave reviews – not just for the outstanding care and programming they provide – but also for the meals and kitchen staff.
Make mealtimes a highlight. Draw people out of their rooms with meals they look forward to everyday. Watch the kitchen become a hub of positivity that resonates throughout your entire building.
We work hard to make our menus a perfect balance of “Good for you” , “At home comfort” and the slightest touch of really good “Junk Food”. We balance the cards proteins and veggies, and watch our budgets closely. It is is the best “institutional food” you will ever have. We have been in partnership with Bellwood for years now, and we LOVE what we do with them. Food is Fuel and Food is necessary to feel good.
We shape our menus around the seasons, changing 2 or 3 times a year.
