Square Meals: UMD Dining Take-Away Program

UMD Dining is proud to offer the Square Meal program.

These take-away containers can now be used in Superior Dining and the Plaza Food Court

SKIP THE LINE!

We want to reward our guests who choose to use this sustainable program. You're not only saving the planet by using a reusable container, you are participating in a program that was designed with physical distancing in mind.

So from now on, when you use a Square Meal container in Superior Dining during the dinner rush don't wait in that long line of students waiting to eat in the dining center. Instead, walk up to the right-hand side of the cashier stand in Superior Dining. There will be someone there to let you in right away! 

Where Can I Eat My Square Meal?

When you take a Square Meal to go, you can eat in your dorm room, outside, in Griggs Center, in Kirby Rafters, the Wedge, the VenDen, the Kirby Lounge, and really any other place on campus where they have seating available. The options are endless! 

How do I use the Square Meal box?

One reusable box replaces on average 300+ single-use to-go boxes. Help save resources by using a Square Meal box!

  •     Purchase or redeem a token for a box at the register for $5 (this is a one-time deposit) 
  •     Get your food in your box, then checkout.
  •     Enjoy your meal.
  •     Empty (and rinse) the box.
  •     Return box to Superior Dining, Superior Dining Express, or the Food Court and receive a token for the next time or a new container if you are getting food right away.

It's Convenient. It's Easy. It's Sustainable.
