Mealtime at Saint Leo is about more than feeding the body; it’s about feeding the soul.

There’s a reason why all our students—even those with fully-stocked apartment kitchens—flock to the Dining Hall. It’s a place to connect, meet a new friend, plan a fundraiser with sorority sisters, talk career goals with your favorite professor, or gather around the TV tuned to ESPN.

Dining Services is here to serve you! We provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, grab-and-go snacks and drinks, event catering, and even birthday cakes.

As a Catholic university seeking growth in mind, body, and spirit for all members of our community and in keeping with our core value of responsible stewardship, Saint Leo is committed to creating an eco-friendly campus.

  • Reusable To-Go Containers: Say goodbye to Styrofoam waste. We use durable, reusable plastic containers for all to-go orders. Pay a one-time $3 fee for your container, then bring it back anytime.
  • Washable Dishes & Flatware: Saint Leo washes reusable plates, silverware and cups rather than relying on the disposable stuff. We want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
  • Tray-less Dining: It's proven. No trays in the Dining Hall means less wasted food and fewer dishes to wash. This initiative helps reduce our carbon footprint by reducing landfill and food waste, electricity and sewage, and preserving natural resources.
