Skyline College has created a Grab & Go meal program offering low-cost nutritious meal options for lunch and dinner available to all students with a Student ID at a cost of just $3.00 for each meal. This extremely low-cost meal plan is made possible thanks to the leadership of the Associated Students of Skyline College, which has worked in collaboration with the college to subsidize the $6.00 cost of the meals by half – reducing the cost-per-meal for the student to $3.00. Individuals without a Student ID may still purchase meals for $6.00. The program soft launched in April and is available at World Cup Coffee & Tea located next to the Fireside Dining Room in Building 6.
For $3.00 (or $6.00 without a student ID), the Grab & Go bundle consists of:
- One triangle prepackaged sandwich (tuna, ham and cheese, egg salad, chicken salad, salami and cheese, turkey and cheese or roast beef and cheese)
- One fresh fruit or healthy snack
- One Aquafina bottled water(16.9oz)
The Grab & Go package was developed by the Skyline College Bookstore and SparkPoint, in partnership with the Associated Students of Skyline College.
In fall 2019, a projected 100 meals will be sold each week. Several categorical programs on campus have expressed interest in further subsidizing the remaining $3.00 for fall 2019 students who are in their program. The Grab & Go program is a compliment to the SparkPoint Food Pantry and Free Community Market that are offered at Skyline College. As a full marketing campaign has just launched, we look forward to contributing to a solution for the widespread food insecurity many students at Skyline College experience daily.
