Meal Plans

Onondaga Community College offers a meal plan for all of the students living on campus at OCC. This is a defined meal plan which allows students to eat a certain number of meals per week. All students living on campus must have a meal plan and have automatically been signed up for the 12-meal plan (12 meals per week). You may change your meal plan from the 12-meal plan to one of the other meal plan options (8, 10 or 14 meals per week) by filling out the Meal Plan Change form.

The meals will generally consist of one entrée, two sides and one beverage. To make your selection easier, we have coded all menu items by shapes depicted on the signage as follows:

One Entree - Star
Sample entrée options are: Omelets for breakfast; Philly Steaks, Pasta Station entrées, and Gourmet Wraps for lunch and dinner.

Two Sides - Circle
Sample sides are: English Muffins for breakfast; Garden Salads, French Fries, and Seasonal Fruits for lunch and dinner.

One Beverage - Square
Sample beverages are: Orange Juice, Coffee, Soy Milk, and 2% Milk.

An example of one complete meal includes one red item, two blue items and one green item, per meal. Students are permitted to eat one meal during a meal period and as many meals weekly as is designated by their purchased meal plan.

Flex Dollars
To accommodate instances where you do not wish to purchase a “meal”, but would still like something to eat or drink, the College offers $150 of “Flex Dollars” included in each meal plan package. This “flexible money” may be used just like cash for any item sold in the Gordon Café, Mawhinney Café, Starbucks or Fresh Express. Do you want that Large Mocha at Starbucks or that pint of Ben and Jerry’s from Mawhinney Café? Use your flex dollars to pay for it!
