Example Carry Out Menu At Valentine Hall

As things continue to change throughout the country and on our campus, the menu will also be subject to change day by day. The culinary team has put together an example menu for lunch and dinner for both hot and cold grab and go items. This menu includes animal protein and vegetarian/vegan options for every meal in a combination of hot and cold entree options. Cold breakfast grab and go options will be available for pick up daily during the dinner meal period.

Cold options include salads, sandwiches, bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt, fruit, snacks, desserts, condiments and beverages. Though subject to change at a moments notice, below is the current hot food example menu we will be working from.
