Important Info

Policies and Procedures

One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • Please bring your dishes to the dish return when finished dining.
  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that Meal Cards are non-transferable.  Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.

Trayless Dining

  • In order to reduce our carbon footprint, Sodexo and Valley Forge Christian College are taking a closer look at our environmental impact.
  • When students use plates without trays the amount of food waste decreases by one ounce per plate. 
  • Research also shows less energy is consumed, and it reduces the amount of water and detergents used.  It takes 1/4 gallon of water to wash a try.   For 20 meals in a week, that's 4 gallons, or skipping one shower a month.

Good To Go Program

  • In a hurry?? Stop by the Dining Commons and take your meal to go just by simply swiping your ID card.  We give you one FREE sustainable container and recycle mug.
  • This is great for students with busy schedules.
  • If you need a meal replacement due to a schedule conflict, please contact Dining Services at (610) 917-3918.
