Dining Services

Selection of a Campus Dining Services Meal Plan entitles you to a Meal Card, which allows you purchasing power equivalent to the plan you have selected.  Here is how it works: Your student ID has your meal plan and Pony Bucks loaded onto it.  You’ll sign in at the reception desk in the Café, or use your ID like a debit card at Wrangler’s Grill or at Pony Expresso to spend Pony Bucks.

Lost or stolen ID cards can be replaced.  Should this happen to you, contact the Student Success Center (x 2034) and they can transfer your meal plan and remaining Pony Bucks to a new ID when the old ID is deactivated.

You never have to be too shy to ask for seconds with our Campus Dining Program.  Our generous policy allows for a second helping of many menu favorites.  All you have to do is ask!  Please note, however, that there are some exceptions to our Seconds Policy including premium dinners like the “Reward Yourself” series or special events that require reservations.

Do you have particular dietary needs?  Please let us know!  Our Campus Dining Services Program can accommodate your special dietary requirements.  For more information, please contact our General Manager, Jose Lopez..  Jose can be reached via telephone at extension 2015, by email at Jose.Lopez@Sodexo.com, or by coming into the office in the Café.


Campus Dining Meal Plans

In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans.  If you need to purchase a meal plan, or if you would like to make a change to the plan you have already selected, simply contact the Panola College Business office at 903-693-2000.


19 Meal Plan

This plan allows for All-You-Care-To-Eat dining in
Café Panola and it has the added flexibility of combo meal
exchanges at Wrangler's Grill.

Pony Bucks

An exciting new addition to available meal plans, Pony
Bucks are a declining balance system; you can add to your
balance at any time during the semester in increments of $50,
then use them like cash to purchase meals, snacks, or drinks. They
are valid at Café Panola, Wrangler's Grill, and the new Panola
Pony Expresso in the library. Convenient ID-based tracking means there is no
fumbling with cash or extra cards. Plus, if you buy them during the
promotional period, you get bonus bucks—for a $50 block, you receive
$5 in bonus Pony Bucks. (That's 10% free!)

Residents who need a little flexibility in getting meals or snacks may add Pony Bucks to their existing meal plan; simply drop by the Café office between mealtimes to find out how. Some grants may also allow you to transfer funds to purchase Pony Bucks along with your books and supplies – just ask at the Financial Aid office.

If you're not a resident, you can purchase Pony Bucks too! Just ask at the Business Office and have your ID with you.
