Staff and faculty can enjoy discounts and convenience with Cornell Dining's MealChoice meal plan

Designed exclusively for Cornell faculty and staff, Cornell Dining's MealChoice meal plan offers convenient, cash-free access to Cornell Dining's eateries, campus vending machines with card readers, and Ithaca-area restaurants and stores participating in City Bucks. What's more, MealChoice users can enjoy discounts on their meals.

MealChoice is available all the time, but summer affords a terrific opportunity to explore eateries all over campus. The Hot Dog Cart and Ice Cream Bike are open weekdays outside Day Hall, McCormick's at Moakley House has patio seating, and dining rooms and cafés are a little less busy between semesters.

Lunch at the dining rooms

Enjoy endless all-you-care-to-eat variety at our residential dining rooms for just $7.50 for lunch, Monday through Friday! Ask for a MealChoice punch card at the door, and when you pay for ten dining room lunches with MealChoice, your 11th lunch is free.

This summer, Morrison Dining on North Campus, Jansen's Dining Room at Hans Bethe House on West Campus, and Okenshields on Central Campus are open for lunch. During the academic year, there's even more variety to choose from!

Discounts for other meals

Beyond the $7.50 weekday lunch, MealChoice offers a 10% discount off the door price for any other breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the residential dining rooms, and a 10% discount off all of your purchases at our cafés, food courts, convenience stores, and more.
