Campus Dining hosts 5 percent day


Eat, drink and be giving--again! MIT Campus Dining will host the second annual "5% Day" on Wednesday, Nov. 28.

From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 5 percent of all sales conducted in all Campus Dining retail locations will be donated to the MIT Community Service Fund as part of Community Giving at MIT. Catering and residential dining rooms are excluded.

Last year this event raised more than $1,800 for the MIT Community Service Fund, providing financial assistance to support MIT student, faculty and staff volunteers in community service projects.
