Michigan Dining strives to provide a dining experience in Martha Cook that is based in community, health and wellness, and is central to the life of the building. Visit the Martha Cook Dining webpage for more information, and here are a few things to know:
The Martha Cook meal plan provides all meals exclusively in Martha Cook Dining, with the exception of Saturday dinner, where residents may swipe into other residential dining halls. Residents visiting North Campus Monday through Friday may also swipe into Bursley Dinner for lunch
Residents are expected to have their MCard in their possession whenever they enter the dining room. Residents must swipe their MCard using the card reader at the dining entrance at every meal to ensure accurate counts of people entering the dining hall at every meal.
Hours-of-operation signs are posted at the dining entrance, and online at the MDining website. There are times during the school year when the meal hours change, for example: during exams and before Breaks. These revised meal hours will also be posted at the dining entrance and on the website.
All meals are served in the dining room area, and residents are expected to eat in the dining room. A variety of food is served at each meal. All meals include meat, vegetarian/vegan, and gluten free entrees, along with a variety of side dishes. Menu selection icons are posted with each food item. Those menu items that sport the M-Smart logo are especially healthy and nutritious. Use these icons as a guide to good eating.
No dishes, silverware, or glasses are to be removed from the dining room. Carry out of food is limited to a cookie or a piece of fruit.
