In addition to the convenience and cost savings, students on a House Meal Plan can take advantage of the following services:
House Bag Lunches - If you'd like to take lunch to class with you,
place an order for a House Bag Lunch by 10am the weekday before (by 10am Friday for Monday). You can order for multiple days at once. To pick up your bag lunch, bring your ID to Rose House Dining Room between 8am-10am. You'll be charged one meal swipe for the bag lunch, and can't use another meal in the House Dining Rooms between 10:30am-3:30pm. Please don't miss scheduled pickups. You can cancel an order at baglunch.scl.cornell.edu.
Box to-go meals - If you are not able to eat a particular meal plan meal in a dining unit, you can order and pick up a box meal at a residential meal plan dining room. To order a box meal breakfast, lunch, or dinner, present your meal plan card to that dining room's door-checker at least 24 hours before you want to pick up the meal. One meal will then be deducted from your plan's weekly meal balance. You will not be permitted to use another meal in the All You Care to Eat dining rooms for that meal period.
Sick trays - Sick trays are available if you are ill and unable to come to a dining unit for a scheduled meal. Sick trays can be picked up at any residential meal plan dining room at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Any individual can bring your meal plan card (and his or her Cornell ID card) to the dining unit to pick up a sick tray meal for you. One meal will then be deducted from your plan's weekly meal balance. You will not be permitted to use another meal in the All You Care to Eat dining rooms for that meal period.
