The article focuses on the Traveling Chef program at the Delnor-Community Hospital in Geneva, Illinois. The program brings in chefs every other month to prepare lunch in the hospital's kitchen. George Carrasquilla, director of nutrition services, says that although he does not give a specific price point for the guest chefs to create meals within, he gives the chefs the regular patient menu from which they can take basic guidelines.
