Chatham Food Hub: Bestfood Cafeteria

The Chatham Food Hub project emerged at a time when it was most needed. Led by Eleanor Wertman, MPH (Program Manager, Community Health at UNC Health Alliance | Population Health Services), it is a significant and innovative project melding food, drink, chefs, and community. Our hospitality businesses (caterers, restaurateurs, chefs, farmers) will serve guests Wednesdays in Siler City at Bray Park this summer.

Our Chatham Food Hub series profiles all the charter members of this drive-through food court, with pre-orders taken online.

Bestfood Cafeteria has served visitors for many years, alongside Hayley Bales Steakhouse, also a favorite among couples, families, and groups, for dinner. Bestfood Cafeteria is one of vendors that was interested in joining the Hub in Siler City and they are also one of the participating businesses in the Count On Me NC initiative.

Guests can look forward to hearty comfort food through regular takeout with Bestfood Cafeteria, and the Chatham Food Hub is an additional way to enjoy their popular chicken pies, which serve five to six. It’s a particularly convenient way to plan dinner or lunch, skip the cooking, and/or donate a meal to a friend or those working as front line team members, first responders, or medical personnel.

Pre-ordering the chicken pies makes it easy to plan and the safe, curbside pickup through the Hub is an efficient way to serve guests. Bestfood Cafeteria selected the chicken pie as an option for the Chatham Food Hub menu since it’s easy to warm, feeds up to six (or works well for a few meals), and is filling. The chicken pie has been a top pick with guests for many years and dining at the restaurant is a bit like Thanksgiving every day.
