Through our partnership with Morrison Senior Living, we are proud to provide the highest quality and freshest ingredients for a full-service dining experience. Our chefs work closely with the Community to stay aligned with preferences and requests of Community Members and their guests.
Choose casual dining in The Bistro, formal dining in The Oak Room, or private dining for special occasions in The Acorn Club. Enjoy a before-dinner cocktail in the always lively Fox’s Den. The flexible meal plan is covered under the Fox Run monthly service fee and gives access to all of the dining venues. Every Community Member has the option to eat what they want when they want. With specials offered every lunch and dinner, and new menu items added daily, the only challenge is trying everything! There are also healthy options available at every meal.
Meet our Director of Dining Services, Mark Herle
“The Food Service Staff and Dietary Team’s motto is ‘Great service starts with me!’ Our team has a ‘can do’ attitude and our goal is to establish relationships with our Community Members and find out what they need to fulfill their expectations. Service with a smile while offering a wonderful dining experience for our residents and their families and friends is what we commit to daily.”
Meet Assistant Director of Dining Services,
“‘Be the best part of someone’s day!’ is our service promise. As Assistant Director of Dining Services at Fox Run, I guide the staff in creating an expectation that something good—even great—happens every day. I am responsible for training and ensuring we all maintain the high Morrison standards to bring that service promise to life at Fox Run.
As a Regional Finance Champion for Morrison Living, I work with our clients and Community Members to achieve financial excellence. I support all 11 Morrison Living accounts in the WNY region by utilizing and implementing new training and program offerings. My day-to-day accounting responsibilities bring the Morrison and Fox Run teams together to create a seamless and collaborative relationship while I oversee annual budgets for the Fox Run Dining Services Department as well as Morrison Living. I also head the implementation of the Fox Run POS system and work closely with Fox Run Community Members ensuring accurate monthly service fee statements and clarifying individual accounts and dining balances.”
Meet Assistant Director, Allison Gardner, DTR, and Nutrition Care Manager, Jennifer Griveas, RDN
“I (Allison) have been at Fox Run since 2013, before completing my degree at SUNY Empire in Health Care Administration. I work with Jennifer, our Nutrition Care Manager, to oversee the health center dining operations, ensuring all residents have a pleasant dining experience while following all DOH regulations. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking and entertaining.”
“I (Jennifer) graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Dietetics from the State University College at Buffalo, and have been working in long-term care facilities since 1993. As the Fox Run Nutrition Care Manager, I am responsible for directing the comprehensive clinical nutrition care for our Health Center residents and coordinating dining services and Health Care Center communications. In addition to ensuring Quality Care Standards are met per Department of Health regulations, I assist in the menu planning process for our communities’ therapeutic and consistency-modified diets and provide nutrition counseling as needed. The very best part of my job is being part of a team that’s passionate about resident care and providing the best quality of life for our community members.
Meet Regional Executive Chef, Lisa Sanders
“My answer to the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” was always, ‘A CHEF!’ It was my mission and calling. My mother encouraged me to try a variety of different activities and interests, but I always found my way back to cooking. Whether it was taking cooking classes through my local recreation department or even in dance class, at seven years old, the song I chose for my big solo was called I Can Cook Too by Nancy Walker, and I brought my kitchen set on stage with me.
After high school, I went straight into Culinary School, attended Johnson & Wales University, and loved every minute of it. I was very fortunate to be able to travel and work with some great international chefs in Paris and North Wales, soaking up every lesson on what it meant to be a culinary artist.
I’ve learned that food is something that brings people together and creates memories. But being a Chef is not just about creating great food; it’s about leadership, creativity, integrity and teaching those around you to always strive to be better. We all share the same passion and have the same hunger to perfect our craft, which is what makes great chefs stand out and above the rest. I aim to instill those values and lead by example to better my team.
As a Regional Executive Chef for Morrison Living, I truly love to share my passion for food with my team and our clients. Our industry-leading culinary standards help raise the bar and set us up to successfully serve delicious meals in creative and innovative ways.”
