Penn State Campus Residential Dining announced that the department will donate 250 meals during THON weekend to distribute to guests in order to keep them healthy and energized.

On Friday, Penn State Dining will distribute hot chocolate from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. for students waiting outside in line for THON near the All-Sports Museum.

Throughout campus, dining workers will wear THON merchandise to support THON’s philanthropic mission. In addition, “Dietitian Approved” labels will point out healthy meal and snack options in both the dining halls and convenience stores to ensure those participating in THON will consume healthy food options. In addition, Penn State parents and families can take part of $7 deals for dinner on Friday, Feb. 17 through brunch on Sunday, Feb. 19. 

After THON, all dancers will receive a free dinner on Monday, Feb. 20 at any of the five dining locations on campus after they show their assigned dance number.

“Penn State Campus Residential Dining is proud to support the largest student-run philanthropy committee as they fight to change lives, and find a cure for pediatric cancer,” Penn State Dining said in a release.
