Food services are available for students living in campus housing. Residents of Hale Lokelani, Hale Pohaku and Kieffer Hall are required to have a meal plan. This is part of the contract as a condition of residing in these halls. Since the rooms do not have kitchens, no personal cooking is allowed in residence halls for safety and sanitation reasons. Students in these residence halls may choose from these plans: Tuberose (A), Plumeria (B) or Pikake (C). If no meal plan is chosen, students will automatically be placed on the Tuberose (A) meal plan for the semester.
Students living in our apartment complexes Waialae, Date Street and Iolani Terrace may choose to sign up for any of the meal plans listed below, however, they are not required to. For apartment residents who would like the flexibility and ease of having some of their meals prepared for them, Plan D has been specially designed for them.
Meal Plans- Fall 2011/Spring 2012
Tuberose Plan (A): 9 meals per week and $100 declining balance + 2 guest meals= $2,105.00
Plumeria Plan (B): 12 meals per week and $175 declining balance + 2 guest meals= $2,740.00

TBA-This depends on the amount of participation. Spring break meals are not provided in the plans above.
How does the meal plan work?
Let’s use Tuberose (A) meal plan as an example: the “9 meals per week” will cover 9 of the 14 “all-you-care-to-eat” buffet meals offered during the week (choose from 5 buffet lunch meals, 5 buffet dinners on Monday through Friday, 2 weekend brunches or 2 weekend buffet dinners on Saturday and Sunday). Breakfasts and snacks throughout the weekdays may be paid from the $100.00 declining balance ($100.00 declining balance is for the entire semester not per week). The “2 guest meals” for the semester can be used to pay for a visiting guest’s meals.
Only declining balance (DB) dollars are transferable from the Fall to Spring semester. There are no transfers of DB dollars from the Spring to Fall semester. If a student requires more DB dollars they can increase their dollar amount by making a deposit thru www.chaminadedining.com.
The Silversword Cafe offers an all-you-care-to eat lunch in an enclosed setting, plus dinner and weekend meals as part of the regular meal plan.
The Courtyard offers an open-air patio setting, utilizing the "declining balance (DB)" for breakfast, lunch or snacks.
