Linn-Benton Community College
About the program
Without a meal plan, Linn-Benton Community College implements a “Round Up” program around campus, encouraging all to round up to the nearest dollar on food purchases. All proceeds are created into food service gift cards that can be used in our cafe and cafeteria, distributed to students in need of a meal. Throughout the term, anyone can donate anytime they make a purchase in the Campus Store, Commons Cafeteria, or the Courtyard Cafe by telling the cashier that you would like to “Round Up” and the purchase will be rounded to the next dollar or you can even specify a higher amount. There are also designated change donation cans at the register for coins and cash if you prefer. Meal passes are then distributed primarily through Single Stop on campus at Admissions, where students can learn about resources available to them.
