Grab a meal on-the-go with University Dining Services’ new University of Minnesota Dining Services To-Go program! Now, you can use your meal plan for a carry out meal from your favorite residential restaurant. Just bring your U Card to the cashier at any residential restaurant for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or late night, use a meal swipe (or cash or FlexDine!), and enjoy a hot meal on the run!

How does it work?

5. Fill your To-Go Container with tasty foods!
6. Return your receipt to the greeter before you leave the residential restaurant
7. Eat!
