Meals To Go

Simply delicious dinners. Let us take the guesswork out of dinner. Our meal kits contain perfectly portioned ingredients and an easy-to-follow recipe card for restaurant-quality meals made at home.

Life can be hectic, but dinner doesn’t have to be.

Meals to Go are available for pickup Saturday or Sunday in Gordon Commons. Please place your order by 9 a.m. on Thursday. Students who fail to pick up their meals to go option three times will result in expulsion from ordering in the future.

In the interest of public health, we’d like to remind our guests of the increased risk of foodborne illness associated with eating raw or undercooked animal foods such as eggs, meat, poultry, seafood, or shellfish. Meal kits should be stored at a temperature below 40 degrees at all times.

Ready. Set. Order!
