Dining Services is moving away from using disposable containers and will be serving meals on disposable plates to encourage in-person dining, which will not only help us to reduce waste, but is also the next step in returning to the more sustainable, non-disposable dishware and silverware that we used prior to the pandemic.

Dining Services’ new menu site provides the most up-to-date menus and allows users to select meals in line with a variety of dietary needs. The menu is also available via the UC Merced Connect App.

Dining Services has also introduced Bobcat Meal Plans for faculty, staff and students living off campus. For more information, please click here.
