Boxed Lunch

A boxed lunch is a great option for groups on the go. The Grab-N-Go Box Lunch comes with your choice of ham, turkey, roast beef, cheese, or veggie on white or wheat bread with potato chips, individual fresh fruit, and cookie. We’re happy to deliver them or arrange for pick up and we’ll gladly bulk package them instead of individual boxes if that’s your preference. Substitutions and add-on items are available.

Pizza Party

A pizza party is a great way to add some variety to the meals for your event. We’ve partnered with a local pizza favorite, Valentino’s, to offer lunch and dinner pizza party packages at the same rate as the equivalent dining hall meal. The lunch pizza party comes with assorted single-topping pizzas, one side, beverages, plates, utensils, and napkins. The dinner pizza party upgrades the package to two sides. Options for sides include garden greens salad with dressing, garlic spirazzi breadtwists, and cinnamon dessert spirazzi breadtwists. Valentino’s is able to accommodate many special diets and will deliver to your preferred location on campus or off.
