About the SFC Terrier Meal PlanThe Office of Residence Life recognizes that even though there are a lot of food options in the area of the campus and Residence Halls, many are cost prohibitive for students on a tight budget who may not have a job or depend on a very small stipend from their family to eat. St. Francis College, Office of Residence Life will partner with Park Plaza Restaurant (https://www.parkplazarestaurant.com) located only a block from the EHS St. George Hotel at 220 Cadman Plaza West (At Pineapple Walk), New York, NY 11201 to offer a NEW Meal Plan for Resident Students.
Specializing in American diner fare and barbecue specialties, the restaurant is a family own and operated neighborhood stapled that has been an integral part of the community since 1983. They offer a variety of diner style meals with a significant number of options available in the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It offers extended hours for students to be able to eat seven days a week and is open Sunday thru Thursdays from 7:00 am – 1:00 am and Friday and Saturday from 7:00 am – 3:00 am.
Students will be able to select from three SFC Combo Options for each meal at a pre-set price point that will have a built-in savings. They will also be able to order items a la carte from the menu at the regular listed prices. We worked with the chef to design options that tend to be very popular with students within a specific price point. Each student will be able to swipe their ID each time they visit the restaurant and deduct the amount use from the card. The difference in the plans is the amount available on the card. Think of it as a debit card. Students who select a meal plan through their housing application will be billed along with the housing charges in their student account. Students wishing to add additional funds down the line will be able to do so.
Each room is equipped with a twin size bed, dresser, desk, and desk chair per student. In addition to shared closet space, each room has its own bathroom as well as a shared television with cable TV, a refrigerator and microwave and free Wi-Fi throughout the building.
