Dining Services Modifications

Residential Dining Modifications to Service, Fall 2020

Students in dining hallRESIDENTIAL DINING MEAL PLANS: Seating in Holmes Dining will be closed during this period of modified service. Menu items will be made available as takeout options.

Service in Holmes Dining will include a variety of prepackaged takeout items, as well as meals served in takeout containers, sides, snacks, desserts and beverages served in takeout containers.

Our dining locations will continue to offer a variety of healthy items, vegan or vegetarian options, as well as items for those with special dietary needs. It is important to communicate these needs to our management staff so that we may better assist you.

Students will be able to complete one meal plan transaction per meal period. A meal plan transaction includes an order from one of our express pickup locations through BOOST or entry into Holmes Dining Hall.

Order ahead for express meal plan pickup will be facilitated through the BOOST mobile ordering app.

BOOST Mobile orders should be placed within the meal period you intend to pick up, in order to accurately use your meal swipes. (Example: Ordering a lunch pickup during a breakfast meal period will take away your ability to participate in that breakfast period). BOOST ordering for each meal period will open 15 minutes prior to the meal period.

Multiple pickup locations will be available for express pickup around campus. Many items and daily specials may vary based on pickup location.

McKay school Cafe will be open for breakfast and lunch meal plan pickup. Retail sales at the McKay Cafe will be suspended during this time of modified meal plan service.

North Street Bistro will offer an express grill meal plan pickup option for lunch and dinner service.

Holmes Dining will offer express meal pickup at the front checkers stand through breakfast, lunch and dinner meal periods.

Guests are expected to maintain physical distancing. Floor markers are placed throughout the serving lines, and the waiting line prior to the serving area. These will aid in ensuring proper physical distancing.

Holmes Dining will be closed for a 30-minute sanitation period between meals.

These modifications have been developed based on the most current information as well as CDC guidelines and may be subject to change. It is important to stay informed of any changes, modifications, or just our daily menus by visiting our website dineoncampus.com/fsu, or follow any of our social media pages @FSUEats1.

RETAIL: The McKay Cafe will not be open for retail transactions during this modified service period. It will instead be an alternate pickup location for express meal plan orders.

The North Street Bistro and Cafe will still be accepting retail transactions. All retail items will be available through the BOOST mobile ordering app and use of the app is encouraged to increase safety and convenience.

SUBWAY, Burger 978, and Freshens orders will only be available through the BOOST Mobile App. There will be no walk-ins or service lines for these retail concepts.

The Café location will be accepting BOOST orders as well as walk-ins.

Guests are expected to maintain physical distancing. Floor markers are placed throughout the serving lines, and the waiting line prior to the serving area. These will aid in ensuring proper physical distancing.
