Meal Plans and Food Assistance

What if students have questions about meal plans or food assistance?

Students may be looking for food, on or off campus.  Here are a number of resources to share.

On-campus dining is available in three dining centers (all serviced by Missouri State Dining in partnership with Chartwells), Plaster Student Union Vendors (Panda Express, Burrito Bowl, Subway, Chick Fil A, and Starbucks) and Outtakes in the PSU and Strong Hall, and Einstein Bro. in Glass Hall. Review a map of these facilities.

Meal Plans are available for purchase (for on-campus students, off-campus students, faculty/staff) and information can be found on the Missouri State Dining website: 

One can also find information about hours of operation and menus via this website.

On-campus students (those living in the residence halls) can also go to Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services, Hammons House, room 104 to change or update their meal plan.

Off-campus students or faculty and staff can change or update their meal plan by going to the Missouri State Dining Services office located in Blair-Shannon House 114.

Additionally, students may be looking for information on food assistance.  The following websites are resources:

The Well of Life Food Pantry provides an opportunity for Missouri State University students facing food insecurity to receive food assistance. The pantry has dedicated a pick-up time especially for students who may be going hungry, not able to make ends meet, facing a delay in Financial Aid or other assistance, etc.

This is not the only food pantry option available to students. Additional food pantry information can be found on the Food Assistance for Students blog
