Can we take food out of dining café?
If a student is on the run and unable to enjoy a meal in the café, they can purchase food from the Simply-To-Go area using their dining dollars or crash cash. Alternatively, students may request a To-Go container to fill with food from the dining cafe and use a swipe, dining dollars, or crash cash to pay for the meal. If using a To-Go container, when you arrive at the café, you must let the cashier know you would like a To-Go meal. The cashier will swipe your card and give you a sustainable To-Go container. For good health, include fruits and vegetables in your selections. The brighter the colors, the healthier your meal! At the cashier, you’ll find napkins, and utensils. Enjoy your meal!

Door prices vary by meal time and are more expensive than the price-per-meal of the meal plan.
