Special Program Meal Card

Departments hosting an individual or special group may purchase meal cards to issue to participants for use in on-campus Food Service locations. Penn State Food Services offers a variety of dining options just a short walk from nearly any point on campus. For Food Service locations, descriptions, pricing, hours, and menus, visit the Food Service website.

Meal cards are valid in ALL on-campus dining commons and retail locations, including convenience stores. Purchases are discounted, where applicable, at the LionCash+ rate. The Dining Commons offer an all-you-care-to-eat fare at a fixed price* of $7.60 for breakfast, $11.45 for lunch, and $14.25 for dinner. Purchases at the Retail Locations are a la carte so pricing is calculated per item purchased.

At the conclusion of the program, the requesting department will be direct billed for the total amount of charges plus a $1 per card setup fee. An itemized listing of card transactions will only be issued upon request prior to the start of the program. Please complete the form below, allowing 5-7 days for processing.
