Meal Plans

Meal Plan Options Available to All Grantham Students as Listed Below:

Please note that meal plans for the 2013-2014 school year have been redesigned.

2013-14 cost: 2,135 per semester.

Messiah College offers one meal plan for all students.  Students are not required to purchase a set number of meals per week in advance.  The meal plan has two components associated with it: the Dining Services Operations Charge and a declining balance Dining Dollars account.  The Dining Services Operations Charge covers all operational costs associated with the five dining venues on campus.  The funds in the declining balance Dining Dollars account are used to purchase food in each of the dining venues at a 40% discount.  The original billing amount is made up of an $895 Dining Dollar balance and a $1,240 Dining Services Operations Charge.  Additional funds can be added to the Dining Dollars fund without incurring additional Dining Services Operations Charges.  The Dining Dollar balance unused is refundable at the end of the year.  However, the Dining Services Operations Charge is never refundable.

Students living in traditional housing (dorm residence) are required to purchase the meal plan.  The meal plan may also be purchased by apartment, satellite, off-campus and commuter students.

For each of the various retail prices associated with the five dining venues on campus, please see each venue's individual website within http://www.messiah.edu/offices/dining/index.html
