Culinary Program

Wednesday Canteen

Our Wednesday Canteens are modeled after the North Platte, Neb. canteen. This canteen ended up feeding and providing a place of comfort to all the men headed across country to fight in WWII.

Each week, our Culinary Program staff and volunteers prepare a complimentary lunch open to all Veterans, active duty, Guard, Reserves and their immediate family. This nutritious lunch is served in a welcoming environment to men and women of all service eras. Join us and find your community here at Clear Path for Veterans.

Canteen is an opportunity for us to engage the local community. We love to work with area farmers to establish mutually-beneficial relationships. Supporting our local farmers is crucial to a healthy community. We are always open to new partnerships.

Memorial Canteen

While every Canteen is a way for us to honor service men and women of all eras, we like to offer the opportunity to host Memorial Canteens. We will prepare his or her favorite meal, feature pictures and a pamphlet telling their life story, and dedicate words to their memory. This is a way to honor a fallen friend or family member within the local military community. See contact information below for our Executive Chef to learn more about Memorial Canteens.

Mobile Canteen

Canteen lunch at Clear Path’s facility in Chittenango has become a highly celebrated weekly event. We are also pleased to announce that we are partnering with local Veterans' organizations throughout Central New York so that we can bring Canteen to you! Veterans of all eras are welcome to gather with their immediate family and enjoy a complimentary meal thanks to generous sponsorship. Enjoying a home cooked meal in the company of fellow service men and women is an experience that should be had by all. See contact information below for our Executive Chef to learn more about Memorial Canteens.


Join us for a relaxing farm-to-table brunch buffet offered at Clear Path for Veterans' facility on Salt Springs Road. Food is served at three 90-minute seatings. Children four and under eat free. All proceeds go to support our Culinary Program. See the calendar for upcoming dates!
