Breaking Bread

CC students move at a fast pace! They grab their food, chat with friends, and then are off! Between classes, projects, and our commitments, they deserve a calm meal with faculty and staff, and the chance to engage in deeper conversations.

The Breaking Bread program is designed to provide that meal for CC students by providing support for faculty or staff to host students either in their homes or another location on campus. 

If you have the opportunity to take part in a Breaking Bread, please do--you won't regret the experience! One of the aspects that set a liberal arts education apart from other experiences is the opportunity to spend time with professors and staff members outside of the classroom. The Student Life Office supports this program by supporting the faculty and staff who host these meals.


We highly encourage Faculty and Staff to get involved in the Breaking Bread program in order to create a greater sense of community for our students.

Below are the guidelines for the Breaking Bread Program:

  1. The college provides funds to support any staff or faculty member who invites students to their home or other location on campus for a meal. Please note that this fund is not intended to support restaurant meals or field trips, but rather to encourage informal meals outside of the classroom, whether on or off campus in order to expand the opportunity for special contact between students and CC faculty and staff. Informal course work is allowed, but not required. Requests for reimbursement of meals taken in restaurants will not be granted, nor will catered meals from Bon Appetit.

  2. Meals will be reimbursed up to $15 per person (including yourself and immediate family) for the cost of groceries or take-out.

  3. Do not use your P-Card for Breaking Bread purchases.  If waiting to be reimbursed presents a hardship for you, please contact the Student Life Office, x6689, to see if other arrangements might be possible.

  4. Alcohol is not allowed to be served at Breaking Bread.

  5. If hosting a Breaking Bread near the end of the year (Blocks 7 or 8), call the Student Life Office before making purchases to ensure reimbursement.


Reimbursement may take up to a month and they are not guaranteed.
