Food Services Announces Change To Meal Plans Starting Fall 2017


As many students probably noticed when selecting their housing for the Fall 2017 semester, Penn State Food Services will offer a different on-campus meal plan setup.

Students will now have to choose one of three meal plans, as opposed to the overwhelming six options previously available.

All three levels will once again have the same base cost but will feature varying amounts of dining dollars. Level 1 is designed to be spent on 7-10 meals per week, Level 2 on 12-14, and Level 3 on 16-19. Level 2 will be the default dining option for on-campus residents. No official prices for the new options were listed on the Food Services web site as of December 16. In the past, meal plans ranged from $2,110 to $2,645.

The Food Services website describes the change as a way to “make it simpler for students to choose a meal plan level that reflects their weekly eating habits.”
