Perks and Programs

We asked Asana to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Culinary Program: Asana's unique, in-house culinary program provides healthy and nutritionally balanced meals, three times a day. Our skilled chefs and nutrition team thoughtfully plan every menu around known seasonal benefits and availability, using locally sourced and organic ingredients; the menu also fully serves our vegetarian and vegan staff members. In doing so, Asana Culinary keeps the team energized, nourished, and working at their highest potential throughout the day. Follow Asana Culinary on Instagram at
