Breaking Bread program

27 Oct

USC has a program that will actually contribute up to $150 to fund meals for profs and students. There are many options for feeding ourselves, and I propose you think about it, and we talk about it in class tomorrow (Thursday).


  • On-campus meals will now be reimbursed
  • Meals during final exam week will be reimbursed
  • All receipts and reimbursement forms due within one week of the meal

The Breaking Bread Program reimburses faculty for up to $150 per semester (based on an average of $10 or less per student) when faculty dine with undergraduate students from their class or classes. Faculty may dine at their homes, at an off-campus restaurant, or at an on-campus facility.

ONLY FACULTY may apply for this program; however, students may encourage faculty to apply. The Breaking Bread program is intended for individual professors and their current students. The program does not cover ‘group meals’ (that include multiple faculty and students).

    This sounds awesome. I would propose as an option going for The Lab’s appetizers, which by themselves are a pretty varied and good meal. (also comes with refills of chips and dip)

    For clarification, when is the blog post on a “meal or food that provokes memory” due?

    thanks for helping gather various opinions. I have a couple of things up my sleeve, if conflict does not transform into a participatory democracy-type agreement, so let’s touch base next Tuesday, perhaps? The kitchen in the ORL came through again, so cooking is also an option. I realize, tho, that people may be pretty wiped, and just in need of a good meal. But FYI, cooking some things with our “own” food is also an option, or a possible addition…
