Sick Meals

What if I’m sick? 

Everyone feels under the weather from time to time and needs to rest, but you can’t get better if you don’t eat! If you aren’t well enough to come to the dining center, you can get a “sick meal.”

Sick meals

Sick meals are preassembled by dining staff and are intended to meet dietary needs for up to two days, or six meals. They come in one of two options: a breakfast sack or an afternoon sack.   
  • Bring your ID to your community coordinator, who will complete a form for you.
  • You or a friend bring the form to your dining center and present it to the checker.
  • The checker deducts up to three meals from your meal plan for the day and hands you the meal(s). If allergies or other additional needs apply, the checker will alert the dietitian or manager on duty. 
  • If you’re sick the next day again, repeat the above steps. 
Students confined to their room for an extended period of time (e.g., a sickness such as mumps) will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Speak with your CC or dining center manager.
