Food Pass

General Information

How Does it Work?

1. In the first two weeks of the semester (January 29 – February 8), pick up your personal Charger Food Pass card at the table outside the Charger Cafe entrance in the Student Center. This card is yours to keep and use each day throughout the semester.

Keep your card safe! A $12 credit will be automatically loaded each day.*

You must present your physical student ID to receive a single Charger Food Pass card to be used throughout the semester.

Don’t have a physical student ID? Pay the $2.50 fee and pick one up at Admissions and Records.

*Note: The value of this card will be automatically set each evening to $12 for the following weekday. Whether each day’s $12 is used or not, the total value on the card will NOT exceed $12.

2. Once you have your card in hand, use it to purchase up to $12 in meals, drinks, and snacks at the Charger Cafe.

The $12 may be spent however you wish at the Charger Café. If spending more than $12 at the Charger Café in a single day, you will need to pay the difference with cash or credit card.

The cafeteria closes at 3 p.m. Monday -Thursday and at 2 p.m. on Friday. 

The cafeteria lists item prices so students can know what they spend. 

The grill is not open and food items are all prepackaged to make the line run smoother. Students must have the white Food Pass card prior to lining up in the cafeteria, unless they are planning to pay without using the pass.

If I don’t use all my money today, can I use the balance tomorrow along with the $12 for the next day?

No. Money does not carry over from one day to the next. Each day starts a new $12 balance.

Can I use the card for breakfast and lunch?

Yes. You can use the Food Pass multiple times a day as long as you still have money on the card. Anything that goes over the $12 must be paid by the student.

What if I’m a Fullerton College student and I’m taking a class here, too? Can I still get a card?

As long as you have a valid Cypress College student ID card and are currently enrolled in a class, you can get the Food Pass.  If your classes have not started yet, you cannot get a Food Pass.

Will students be charged at the end of the semester for this?

No. Students will not be charged for this.
