All Who Served our Nation Receive Discounts at Campus Restaurants for Veterans Day
Hyde Park, NY – The Culinary Institute of America was established in 1946 to assist World War II veterans joining the post-war
workforce. As a “Thank you” to all who have served in the armed forces, the CIA
is offering special deals at its campus restaurants in Hyde Park, NY on Monday, November 12, the day
Veterans Day is observed this year.
“The CIA is proud to have an opportunity to give back to our
veterans,” says Waldy Malouf,
the college’s senior director of food and beverage operations. “We are
delighted to continue the mission of our founders to educate and support our
men and women in uniform.”
Veterans dining in the American Bounty and Bocuse Restaurants will receive a
complimentary meal (reservations required). At the Apple Pie Bakery Café, Tavern at American Bounty, and Al Forno Trattoria at
the Ristorante Caterina de’
Medici, current and former service members will receive 25 percent off their
meal. No reservations are required for these three options.
In addition, veterans are welcome to visit The Egg student
dining venue in the Student Commons on campus, where
they can receive a complimentary meal of up to $15.
These discounts are valid for both lunch and dinner on
November 12. Alcohol is not included. Reservations can be made by calling
845-451-1011 (American Bounty) or 845-451-1012 (Bocuse) or by visiting www.ciarestaurantgroup.com.
The CIA’s commitment to America’s service members goes back
to its founding, when the first class of students consisted of World War II
veterans studying with the support of the original GI Bill. For more than 70
years, the college has worked closely with all branches of the U.S. military,
providing culinary training for active service members and college education
for those beginning their post-military careers. Dozens of students who have
served on active duty in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast
Guard currently attend the CIA, many with the assistance of Post-9/11 GI Bill
and Yellow Ribbon Program benefits.
