Ravens Return

Dining Services

Dining Services

The Franklin Pierce University Dining Services team has been hard at work over the summer adapting our dining locations for your return to campus. Whether you are new are a new or returning student, we would like to bring a few key updates to your attention.

Dining options on campus will be different this fall, with reduced capacities in dining locations, reinvented serving stations, and additional food-to-go options. All changes to the dining program are in place for your health and safety. 

Student Favorites

The service formats may be changing, but Sodexo will still be offering popular student favorites like Chef Charlie’s famous Mac & Cheese! You will also find their traditional Buffalo Chicken Salad option every Wednesday!

At all dining locations, if you are making a selection from one of our packaged goods displays, please only touch your final selection.

You can plan ahead for your visit to one of our dining locations and view our menus on the BITE app (Android | iPhone) to help with social distancing and crowd control!

Make note of our NEW Hours of Operation in all dining locations.

  • If you haven't already, notify us of any food allergies or special dietary needs prior to your arrival on campus. We recognize your need for safe, healthy meal options and want to ensure that your needs are reviewed in advance of your arrival on campus.

Please reach out to Rebecca Hunt, our Registered Dietitian, , to discuss your individual needs, (603) 899-4363
