Local produce at Frary Dining Hall

Healthy, sustainable food is a hallmark of the three dining halls at Pomona.

One of the many benefits of being in the The Claremont Colleges and near the lively Claremont Village is the near-endless food variety.

Students at the Coop Fountain

You can grab a snack, meet a professor for a shake, or settle in for a study session at the student-run Coop Fountain.

Pomona has three dining halls: Frary, Frank and Oldenborg. Each offers a variety of options, from grill and pizza stations to vegan and gluten-free options. We aim for sustainable and healthy food practices. Food is prepared fresh for every meal and locally sourced when possible.

Frary (which features our amazing Prometheus mural) is the home of Snack, where four nights a week you can meet up with friends for late-night sustenance. For lunch you can practice your foreign language conversation skills at Oldenborg language tables or catch lunch talks on international topics nearly every week. 

You can also grab a quick meal or settle in for a long study session at the student-run Coop Fountain or have an upscale lunch at the Sagehen Café.

Want to get off campus? You can use your meal plan to eat at the other 5C dining halls. (It must be taco night somewhere.) Or walk into the Claremont Village for an evening out at one of the more than 50 dining options.

Students who live on campus must be on a meal plan, which can be 16, 14 or 12 meals per week at any 5C dining hall. (The dining halls serve 19 meals per week.) The plans also include Flex Dollars, which can be used at the Coop Fountain, Sagehen Café, or other 5C cafés.
