  • Block Plans, purchased at the HMDS office, allow individuals to purchase a set amount of meals at affordable prices. They are ideal for staff, faculty, commuters, and those in independent living, who are interested in dining on campus more frequently. Block Plans can be used at Founders Commons. As an added bonus, each Block Plan comes with 50 Points that work just like cash at Founders Commons or the Tea Shop. Block Plan meals and associated Points are valid for the academic year. Block Plans may not replace a traditional meal plan for students in the dormitory-style residence halls.

Meal Accommodations for Religious Observance
Dining Services strives to design menus and meal offerings that meet the diverse needs of our students, staff, and faculty. For individuals on the meal plan whose religious observance requires a special diet during holidays, please contact Housing Management and Dining Services at dining@mills.edu so we can best accommodate your needs. It is our regular practice to label the dishes we serve so individuals can make informed choices about their selections. While we are currently unable to provide Halal meats or Kosher kitchen facilities, we aim to offer a variety of foods that might satisfy your needs as you observe your spiritual and religious practices.
