Meal Plans

There are a variety of ways Bethel's meal plans make life a bit easier. You already have enough on your plate as a Bethel student. Leave it to our expert chefs to prepare fresh food for you each day.

Plus, we believe that dining at Bethel is about more than just the food. Life happens whenever you share a meal or grab a cup of coffee with your friends.

Your Meal Plan Options

If you're living in campus housing, you'll have your choice of meal plan options based on where you're living.

All meal plans, except for the Flex Only plans, give you a certain number of meals in the Monson Dining Center as well as flex dollars that you can use at any of our locations.

Changing Meal Plans and Adding Flex

Changes to a meal plan can be done through MyBethel (click the Housing & Meals link in the Tools & Resources menu) during these selected times throughout the year. You can also add flex dollars all throughout the school year at a 10% discount that is billed to your student account.

Cancellations requests must be sent to dining-services@bethel.edu.  Please make requests from your Bethel-issued email.  Notice of approval/disapproval of your request will be sent via email.

Bringing Guests

If you are on any of the Navy or Gold meal plans, you can use meals or flex to bring guests into Monson Dining Center. Invite up to five guests per meal period. If you are on the Gold C or Z plan you can bring guests in with flex.

Dietary Needs

Our staff is able to provide meals for a wide variety of dietary requirements. Contact the Office of Accessibility Resources and Services at accessibility-services@bethel.edu to discuss your unique needs.

Swipe Out Hunger

The Swipe Out Hunger program presented by Bethel Student Government in partnership with Sodexo helps get nourishing meals to CAS students experiencing food insecurity at no cost to the student. 

Employee Dine Dollars

If you are a Bethel employee, you may use your ID card to purchase meals on campus by adding Dine Dollars (employee flex) to your account. For more information visit Monson Dining Center Prices or stop by the Dining Services office.


We try and make meal plans as easy as possible, but we know they can be confusing. If you have questions, please contact the Dining Services Administrator at
