We love to give back!

We are committed to providing an outstanding experience to the students of Elon University, but helping to better our community is also incredibly important to us. Here are few examples of how Elon Dining is active in the community.


Thanksgiving Donations

We have worked with Allied Churches of Alamance County and First Baptist Church each Thanksgiving for the past couple of years to help provide Thanksgiving meals to those who are food insecure in Alamance County.

Dine with Purpose

A week out of each month during the school year we donate 10% of proceeds from one of our retail dining locations to a different local or national charity.

Meal Swipe Donations

We invite students with Block Meal Plans to donate their remaining meals at the end of the year! Those meals are used to help donate non-perishable food items to local food shelters.

Educating our Community

We’re always excited to help to educate our community about food, whether it be through our teaching kitchens, talking with Elon students about nutrition and food safety, or inviting our community to try foods from cultures around the world!
