Ramadan 2024

During Ramadan, from March 10–April 9, all dining commons (Café 3, Crossroads, Clark Kerr, and Foothill) will be open and offer carry-out containers/meals, and other services. 

  • Students may ask the cashier when they enter for a carry-out container they can fill at any dining commons.
  • To-go meals will also be available upon request to Muslim-identifying students in all dining commons. Students can take two to-go meals (dinner + breakfast). They will include a box of items, including bananas, dried dates, yogurt, orange juice, bagels, milk, English muffins, boiled eggs, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
  • Halal meat is served at all dining locations.
  • Breakfast items will be available during all meal periods, including breakfast cereal, assorted fruit, milk, and juice, and can be placed in the carry-out containers provided by the cashiers.
  • This year, we will have specialty meals at the beginning and end of Ramadan, which use halal-certified proteins (provided by Mary’s Chicken and Creekstone Farms). Our plans include the following:
    • A Ramadan welcome meal on Sunday, March 10, 2024 which will include jeweled basmati rice, butter chicken, roasted vegetables, naan, dolma, kheer coconut rice pudding
    • An Eid al-Fitr celebration meal on Tuesday, April 9, 2024 which will include braised halal lamb with dates, fish biryani, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, dolma, and baklava.
  • Students do not need a meal plan to eat in the dining commons; guests can pay for individual meals. Undergraduate and graduate students and their families are welcome. See cash/Cal 1 Card debit pricing at
