Dining at Omega

Omega is pleased to welcome dining consultants Michel Nischan, three-time James Beard Award-winning chef and food equity advocate, and Michael Leviton, honored chef and sustainable food systems advocate.

Michel and Michael have created a new menu for Omega's dining hall. It's not to be missed.

What's new: Greater variety, more flavor, higher nutritional value, and deeper sustainability.

What's staying the same: Mostly vegetarian food, fresh from the farm.

What to look forward to: Local, organic, sustainable, nutrient-dense, artisanal, and whole-food meals.

Meal Times at Omega Are a Community Event

Our Dining Hall is a place to meet new friends, talk about the day's events, and share your unique experiences.

Join a table in our Dining Hall or take a seat on the porch outside. At our communal tables, you'll taste the bounty of the Hudson Valley in three delicious, mostly vegetarian meals a day. Omega staff operates the Dining Hall and prepares all meals using local and organic ingredients as often as possible. Much of our food is supplied by farmers right here in the Hudson Valley. You're sure to taste the freshness in every bite.

Why Vegetarian?

Many people ask us why we serve mostly vegetarian food in our Dining Hall. The answer is simple. A primarily vegetarian diet fulfills one of Omega's core values—sustainability. It consumes less resources and leaves a smaller carbon footprint than a heavily meat-based diet. If you've never eaten a vegetarian meal, we encourage you to try it. You'll be surprised by how hearty and flavorful vegetarian food can be, and how good you'll feel eating it.

To further our commitment to sustainability, Omega donates food leftovers locally to The Lunch Box in Poughkeepsie, New York, and we compost food scraps at Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency.

vegetarian diet ever since!"
