On-the-go? Try Pack&Go!
Our sustainable takeout program allows you to fill a reusable, recyclable container with your dining hall menu favorites and take with you. There’s no rush on returning the container; bring it back to a dining hall at your convenience and we’ll hand you a clean container or carabiner for your next Pack&Go take-out meal. Pack&Go is available at Fountain, Clark and Case Dining Halls only.
Due to COVID-19, we are placing an emphasis on takeout at the dining halls. Students can eat in one of our outdoor tents or take their food back to their room.
How It Works
- Tell the cashier you want to Pack&Go before you pay for your dining hall meal.
- Due to COVID-19, we are offering the container for free to our Core meal plan holders (Flex, Flex Plus and Dining Hall). Others can purchase the container for a $2.50 one-time fee.
- Receive a carabiner from the cashier, then enter the serving area.
- The server will fill your container. Want food from a different serving line? Spin through the lobby and get in another line.
- Grab a cup to fill your drink and some cutlery to go. You’re all set!
- Bring it back. Rinse and exchange your container the next time you come to the dining hall. You’ll receive a clean container or token for your next Pack&Go purchase.
The Finer Points of Pack&Go
- The Pack&Go program is available for all guests, including students, faculty, staff and non-meal plan holders.
- Guests must request takeout before their card is swiped and are not allowed to utilize take-out and consume a meal inside the dining hall on the same card swipe or payment.
- In a typical school year, Pack&Go would count as a meal credit. But because we are encouraging take out, we have relaxed this rule. Students using their meal plan will use a meal swipe or dining dollars to purchase their dining hall take-out meal.
- Guests may fill the container with the menu items of their choice, but the lid must be able to close. A piece of fruit can be carried out in addition to their container.
- Pack&Go is not available during dining hall special events or theme meals.
