Meal Plans

  • Residence Hall students are required to purchase one of the meal plans listed on the Room and Board Agreement including: Platinum (19 meals), Gold (14 meals), Silver (10 meals) or Bronze (10 meals) per week. the Bronze meal plan is limited to 50 participants. The Meal Plan Agreement is listed in its entirety on page 4 of the Room and Board Agreement.
  • Each Plan includes a varying amount of Hawk Dollars.
  • Hawk Dollars are monies placed into an account accessed with an I.D. card, which is used like a debit card for purchasing food in any of the retail locations on campus. Additional Hawk Dollars can be added at any time during the semester.
  • The Bronze plan is 10 meals per week, but with no Hawk Dollars. We encourage all students who select this meal plan to evaluate their daily meal usage before selecting this plan. We do not recommend this plan for students who do not plan on going home every weekend.
  • All plans except Bronze have a “plus” option, which allows for the addition of $100 Hawk Dollars at the beginning of each semester
  • Commuter students may purchase plans offering 30, 45 or 60 meals throughout a semester plus an allotted amount of Hawk Dollars. There is also a “Hawk only” commuter meal plan available. Meal plans may be purchased with financial aid.

Commuter students have the following options for a meal or quick snack:
MV Commons Snack Bar:
Wholly Habanero’s- serves 100% "made-for-you" and "made-for-you-fast" authentic Mexican Foods made from only the freshest quality ingredients, including local fruits and vegetables, dairy products and naturally raised beef, pork and chicken.
The Pizza Joint- is a place students miss from back home, or the "mom and pop" shop they've discovered just a few blocks off campus. It is nothing fancy - just the best place to find some serious homemade, hand tossed pizza from fresh, quality ingredients
Salad Toss- is a great place to create your own restaurant style salad. Add as many proteins and different fruits or veggies that you would like with the choice of different dressings or just oil and vinegar.
Sammie’s Deli- is a great location to create your own sandwich or sub with a variety of meats, cheeses, breads and toppings. Sammie’s has signature soups and sandwiches daily and the countless options will provide endless opportunity.
Resident Dining Hall- is open to residents, commuters and faculty/staff. Serving up your favorites like home-style meals, full service deli, grill, homemade pizza, fresh salad bar, desserts, beverages and much more.

NOTE: Commuter Plans roll over from the Fall to Spring semesters, but DO NOT roll over from Spring to Fall semester. Resident Meal Plan week runs from Friday to Thursday.
Sick trays are available to meal plan participants. If a student is unable to make it to the Resident Dining Hall due to illness, a friend may bring a sick tray to their room if they have a signed sick tray card and their Student I.D. card. Residents can obtain sick tray passes from the College nurse or from a Resident Director in Bellamy Hall Office.
Mindful by Sodexo is making the healthy choice the easy choice by providing menu items that balance nutrition and indulgent flavors. With these menu items, you won’t feel like you’re sacrificing flavor or taste. Look for the following nutrition icons on the foods being served on your campus to help you meet your dietary needs or desires.
  • (V) Vegan offerings contain no meat, fish, eggs, milk or other animal-derived products such as honey. Look for the menu icon to find vegan items daily.

  • (VG) Vegetarian Menu items with the vegetarian icon do not contain meat, fish or poultry, or meat products (i.e. soup bases). Our vegetarian offerings meet the needs of lacto-ovo vegetarians, and may include eggs and/or dairy products. Vegan items are also offered for those vegetarians who avoid all animal products.
  • (L) Local- We work closely with local produce distributors to maximize the fruits and vegetables purchased from local farms. We also purchase from local dairies, and participate in farm to school initiatives.

  • (O) Organic food is produced by farmers, who focus on using renewable resources and conserving soil and water to preserve the environment for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from antibiotic-free and hormone-free animals.

  • (GF) Gluten Free Gluten-free diets are necessary for individuals who are unable to digest a protein called gluten found in wheat, rye, barley, and possibly oats. Gluten intolerance or inability to digest gluten–is commonly referred to as celiac disease, or gluten sensitive enteropathy. Individuals who have gluten intolerance suffer damage to their intestines when they eat foods that contain gluten. Sodexo keeps all gluten free products in its own separate pantry and labeled accordingly.
If you need additional assistance finding the right types of foods for you, please reach out to your Sodexo manager or chef.
Moe Money-Similar to Hawk Dollars, Moe Money is an all in one debit card account which works with your ID card. When you're hungry stop by one of the locations, swipe your card and you're on your way. No searching for change or worrying about where you left your wallet. Unlike Hawk Dollars it isn't tax exempt, so it's just an easier way for our faculty, staff and students without meal plans to purchase their morning coffee, or to come in for lunch. No need to fumble with loose change before you've had your morning cup.
