Meal Plans:

Meal plans are required for all residents of Onondaga Community College. The meal plan is a defined meal plan which lets you eat a certain number of meals per week.

Meals generally consist of one entree, two sides, and one beverage. To make it easier to tell what is available, all menu items ave been coded by shapes depicted on signage:

One Entree= Red Star
Two Sides= Blue Circle
One Beverage= Green Square

If you take one red item, two blue items, and one green item per meal that is a meal. Students are permitted to eat one meal during a meal period. They are permitted to eat as many meals weekly as it is designated on their purchased plan.

To make the plan more flexible, $150 "Flex Dollars" are also included into all meal plans. Flex money can be used just like cash for any item sold in the Gordon Cafe, Mawhinney Cafe, Starbucks, or Fresh Express, just like regular money.

8-MEAL PLAN: $900.00
