I know, but my parents say it is always possible, I mean it is for a good education, and you need to eat.

One of the best things about MIT dining is that there are no required “meals” that you have to buy. Instead, you decide how much money to credit to your student ID, then spend the money however you like on campus. In addition to the typical dining halls, MIT also has Dunkin Donuts and Subway. You can also use your card at LaVerde's Market in the student center. Although prices tend to be expensive, students should always be able to find something to eat. Most freshmen don’t catch on to one of the best lunch deals—the food trucks. There are two food trucks at 77 Mass. Ave. and a large group of them next to the bio building. Not only do the food trucks serve yummy hot food—things like pizza, Chinese, and Mexican—the prices are also unbelievably cheap.
The most common complaint that students have is the lack of food selection at the regular dining halls. Since various dining halls are only open for dinner, your options at any given time can vary. Food ranges from hot entrées to cold à la carte items, and vegetarian options are always available. Learn the operating hours of the dining halls—there’s nothing more disappointing than walking to the Student Center for a crepe only to find that the restaurant is closed. LaVerde’s is open late most days of the week, so satiating late-night munchies won’t be a problem. MIT campus dining isn’t perfect, but it’s improving, and one of the main reasons is the friendly and helpful staff. If you have any comments or suggestions, let them know because they actually care what you think. Students can suggest meals or even comment on prices, and usually the staff will do what they can to help.
