To Nourish and Nurture

Dining at Middlebury College is much more than three meals a day. We are a yearlong operation that strives to be an active and engaged part of the community.

Dining Services include three all-you-care-to-eat dining halls, several retail options such as the Grille and Wilson Café, and an exceptional catering staff to support campus events and private functions.

Our dedicated team works to serve and meet the needs of students, faculty, and staff during the academic year as well as the summer months when Middlebury Schools and Programs are in session. 

Each guest we serve allows us and opportunity to build community, create connections and share the fine culinary creations from our kitchens. It is our goal to deliver delicious meals, while honoring our commitment to locally produced, sustainable and high quality products.

Our Menus

You can check daily on the different menus for each dining hall.
