Meal Plans

California Baptist University is proud that Provider Contract Food Services, a local homegrown company with global appeal, provides the campus community with quality food service options.  Provider manages the on-campus food service program, campus catering services and on-campus vending. The University Card Services Office and Provider work closely together to create dining options that meet the needs of the CBU community. 

Meal Plans consist of two parts:

  • Meal Swipes can be used to obtain a full meal.
  • Dining Dollars are a pay-as-you-go option that will work similar to an ATM debit card. Dining Dollars may be used to obtain a full meal or individual items and are accepted at any of the campus dining locations. 

Residential students must purchase a meal plan (Plan D minimum). Commuter students are not required to purchase a meal plan but may choose from all the plans offered.  Meal Plans are sold by the semester.  Unused Meal Swipes and Dining Dollars do not rollover from semester to semester.

Available Plans for the Fall '18 and Spring '19 Semesters
