Why Choose Us

Why should you choose The Garage Dining Services as the meal provider for your child care facility?


The kids love our food! And the parents love it because the kids eat it. Everything is prepared fresh daily at our kitchen in Islandia, and delivered hot to your facility at lunchtime. We never use frozen entrees — grilled cheese sandwiches are hot off the grill, homemade pizza directly from our brick ovens — all meals are chef prepared right before they leave our kitchen.

We provide fresh sliced fruits rather than canned, fresh baked muffins rather than packaged, and a variety of menus to choose from. We incorporate healthy items and delicious goodness into all our meals.


Our meal program will help you increase enrollment at your facility. Let’s face it—parents talk to each other. If a child likes the food at your facility, that news spreads and other parents will want to send their kids to you as well.

When a child care facility doesn’t offer a meal program, it’s a major deterrent for families that don’t want the hassle or expense of preparing a meal for their child every day. We also offer an alternate menu for kids with allergies.


The Child and Adult Care Food Program - CACFP is a nutrition education and meal reimbursement program helping providers serve nutritious and safely prepared meals and snacks to children and adults in day care settings.

We offer CACFP and non-CACFP menus created by a NYS registered dietitian, and we follow all health department protocols. Our growth and popularity among the children is a product of the quality of our food.


We offer breakfast, lunch & snacks at competitive pricing. We can provide alternate meals for those individuals with food allergies or dietary restrictions.

Years in Food Service on Long Island


Tiny Treasures was blessed to find The Garage Eatery soon after we re-opened our daycare after COVID in May of 2020. We couldn’t be happier with the level of service we receive from Don and his team. Everyone is wonderful, including his behind the scenes staff who accommodate all of our menu requests/changes, billing and especially his delivery team who arrive every day on time and with smiles on their faces. The entire team has gone above and beyond to accommodate Tiny Treasures Child Care and we recommend them to any daycare center who is looking for nutritious, affordable meals and snacks for their center.

As the owner of three child care centers, I understand the importance of high-quality food.

We have been using The Garage Dining Services for over 5 years, and the parents and children love the nutritious food we serve.

I highly recommend The Garage Dining Services.

--Ed Attard at The Learning Experience


I have known Don three years and it has been a great relationship. He has been servicing our school for three years on a daily basis. His staff; his food are all five star. The selection and quality is second to none.

Don is a great guy and will always go out of his way to please. I would not think of using anyone other than The Garage Dining Services!!!
