Café Meal Assistance Program

The Café Meal Assistance program is provided by Student Engagement and Activities for students who identify a need for food while on campus. The assistance represents individual meals that a student may request in the Café on SJC campuses.  The amount of meals a student is eligible for each month is based on the number of credits you are currently enrolled in. Students are provided meals in a monthly allowance and may request additional meals every 4 weeks. 

Cafe Meal Assistance is not available for the Fall 2020 semester due to the Campus Cafe's being closed for the College's COVID altered Operations.
