Fall 2021

Welcome, Students!

The dining team is working under extraordinary circumstances to adapt to the ever-changing conditions presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The dining program has been developed with the primary objective of meeting the needs of the health & safety of Muhlenberg students and the campus community. This has created modifications to program, meal plans and hours of operation in an effort to meet current guidelines and to maintain safe social distancing guidelines given the anticipated volume of customers this semester.

Dining dollars are part of your meal plan, while Berg Bucks are not. Dining dollars can be used at any dining location on campus including Java Joe and the General's Quarters.

Berg Bucks are not part of any meal plan, and are optional. The ’Berg Bucks program provides students with added flexibility and convenience! Independent of meal plans, ’Berg Bucks may be applied toward purchases at on-campus dining venues, the ’Berg Bookshop and campus laundry machines in major residence halls. ’Berg Bucks are a great way to supplement any meal plan!

The Noshery is an integrated kosher facility within the Wood Dining Commons at Muhlenberg College. It houses a separate kosher meat kitchen under Star-K Certification and kosher dairy kitchen under Star-D Certification. A Mashgiach Temidi is on the premises during all hours of operations. Every meal is served on disposable plates with flatware. Both kosher kitchens feature menus predicated on fresh ingredients and scratch-made recipes. Classics including Matzah Ball Soup are available everyday at Noshery South (Star-K certified Kosher Meat Restaurant) while daily features such as Falafel and Grilled Cheese can be found at Noshery North (Star-D certified Kosher Dairy Restaurant). The Noshery is part of the Wood Dining Commons, an all-you-care-to-eat facility that features 6 other restaurants.
 
This semester, we are also featuring Nosh & Go - pre-packaged sandwiches, salads, and more in the General's Quarters.
