Go Green & Take Your Meal To Go

How it Works


Customers may purchase The Green Container from any check-in stand at Campus Center Dining Hall or Terrance Dining. Containers have a one-time cost of $5 and can be used throughout your career at Ithaca College. 


Once inside the dining hall with your Green Container, you have ten minutes to fill your container with your food selection.  You are not permitted to eat a meal in the dining court and remove food in a Green container. Please make sure your container is properly closed before taking your meal with you to your next destination. Please adhere to the FDA's food safety instructions if you store your meal before consumption.

Remove and Return

There's no need to wash your container! Simply remove large food debris before returning your container at Campus Center or Terrace check-in:  You may choose to receive either a key tag or a clean container to be used immediately.

When choosing the to-go option, you are acknowledging that you have chosen to take your meal to-go; if you would like to eat a meal in the Dining Hall in addition to taking a meal to-go, you will be charged for two meals. Only containers damaged due to a manufacturing defect may be returned for a replacement container. Please note that per New York Food Code, only containers provided by Ithaca Dining Services may be used. Outside carryout containers are not permitted.
