Fantastic Food and Catering Services

The quality of campus dining and catering is excellent and the variety of offerings is exceptional. We will work with you every step of the way to plan your dining needs. From bag lunches for youth campers to a grazing dinner for 250, we strive to exceed your expectations. We provide an all-you-can-eat format in our dining halls, where guests can choose from made-to-order sandwiches, grilled items, salad and dessert bars, a pizza ad pasta station, and several vegetarian specialties.

Working meals are available and summer picnics on one of the patios or quads overlooking the beautiful Genesee Valley are also possible. We can accommodate all of your dining requests. And if your schedule allows attendees a meal on their own, the historic landmark Village of Geneseo can make it great with a fine selection of restaurants and cafes.
