Meal Plan Information

Earlham students are required to be on one of the College’s five Meal Plans to establish a financial base for this service and to reinforce the College’s residential community. Students may choose a 10, 14 or 19-meal plan, as well as the Quaker 90 or 150 block meal plan.

Meals may be eaten in the Earlham Hall Dining Commons or used for Meal Deals in the Coffee Shop Snack Bar. Students may eat only one meal per meal period (one breakfast, lunch and dinner). Meal plans are not transferable and may not be shared with another student. A meal week begins on Sunday thru Saturday; unused meals are forfeited at the end of the week for the 19, 14, and 10-meal plans.

First-year students are required to be on the 19-meal plan their first semester but may change to a 14-meal plan, 150-meal plan or the 90-meal plan for the second semester.

Quaker Dollars are bonus dollars for use in the Coffee Shop, Coffee Shop and the Dining Hall. They may be spent to purchase snacks, meals or to treat a friend to dinner. Quaker Dollars balance will carry over from first semester to second semester. Dollars not used during the second semester are forfeited at the end of the academic year.
