Upstate NY’s Vegan Eatery

On October 1, Saugerties, NY welcomed Healthy Gourmet To-Go, a new vegan storefront.

Residents of New York’s Hudson Valley region can now pick up gourmet vegan food at a new storefront—Healthy Gourmet To-Go. Owner Roni Shapiro has been in the vegan catering business for nearly 20 years, but moved to the new location in nearby Saugerties to expand her business. She now operates a mostly gluten-free food delivery service, whipping up 10 meals each week, and plans to start making options like Indian jasmine rice burgers, polenta with putanesca sauce, and coconut tapioca pudding with chocolate ganache for walk-in customers. On December 10, she will host her first event at the store—a benefit art show, featuring photographs of rescued animals by Catskill Animal Sanctuary volunteer Jill Meyers.
