Get Well Meals

Feeling Under the Weather?

Vanderbilt Campus Dining knows it can be rough getting sick while at school.  That’s why we offer Get Well Meals – food that’s easy on the stomach when you’re not feeling your best.  Too sick to pick it up yourself?  We’ll even allow a ‘sick buddy’ to pick it up for you.  Meals are deducted as a Meal Swipe, and students can use this service as needed throughout the year.

Breakfast includes:

  • Oatmeal
  • Fruit
  • Tea Bag
  • Fruit Bar
  • Water

Lunch/Dinner options include:

  • Soup (Vegan option available)
  • Fruit
  • Chips
  • Tea Bag
  • Water

To start your order, simply text “Vandysick” to 55744 on a mobile phone, or complete this online form.  Get Well Meal pickup locations are Commons Munchie Mart, Kissam Munchie Mart, Highland Munchie Mart, and Branscomb Munchie Mart.

If you require urgent medical assistance, please contact the Student Health Center at 615-322-2427.  For emergencies, dial 911, or go immediately to the emergency department.

If you think you have the common cold or flu, follow these tips:

  • Cover your cough – into your elbow, arm, or tissue
  • Wash your hands often – at least 30 seconds is recommended
  • Avoid close contact with others
  • Stay hydrated and get plenty or rest
  • Call a doctor if your symptoms persist

Getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent getting the flu.  Student Health offers flu shots M-F from 8:00am – 4:30pm, and no appointment is necessary.


Details: Please note that Get Well Meals are only available for on-campus undergraduate students currently enrolled in a meal plan.  Get well meals will be considered a meal swipe, and will be pulled the next business day.
