Residents enjoying supper.

At Vassar-Warner Home, we know good food is a key ingredient to quality of life. Our chef works with a licensed dietician to ensure that meals are nutritious and delicious. Whenever possible, he prepares meals using fresh ingredients from Hudson Valley farms and food purveyors,  including resident purveyors! – (our Gardening Club maintains a vegetable and herb garden on the premises). The residents’ Menu Planning Club lets the chef know what they like—and don’t like!—and he does his best to incorporate their feedback. Our Baking and Gardening Clubs often share the fruits of their labor. Christmas cookies are a perennial favorite! And in the warmer months, everyone enjoys weekly BBQ meals.
