Sack Lunch Program:
If you have a class or job conflict during the normal meal hours and are a residential student, you can complete a sack lunch menu request. The key here is to remember that you must have your request in at least 48 hours in advance. Policy forms and request sheets can be obtained from the Sodexo outer office, which is located off the kitchen in the Memorial Student Center.
Grab N Go Sack Lunch Special:
How this special works is when you come to the Commons you simply tell the Headcheck person that you would like a Grab N Go Sack Lunch, and they’ll hand you one right there. You must walk back out of the Commons after receiving one and you may eat it wherever your heart desires. You are not allowed to take a Grab N Go Sack Lunch and eat it in the Commons, nor can you eat in the Commons and then ask for a Grab N Go Sack Lunch on your way out. We do ask that you recycle all disposable items from the sack lunch. No littering on Campus please. The Grab N Go Sack Lunch includes a Sandwich, Fruit, Cookies, Salad, and a Beverage, either 1 carton of milk or a 12 ounce canned beverage. A Vegetarian option will also be available.
