General

Do I have to live in the house to join the co-op?

Nope. Most of our members don’t live in the co-op.

How much are dues?

The co-op is by far the cheapest organized eating option on campus, with dues of only $550 per semester.

Who can join?

You can! Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to join the co-op. Over the years, we’ve also had a few members who are post-docs or faculty.

I never cooked before! Can I still join?

Yes! Many of us joined without knowing how to cook. You’ll have four or five other members cooking with you, as well as a well-stocked shelf of cookbooks to consult for ideas, recipes, and tips.

Where is 2D?

2 Dickinson Street — it’s called 2D for a reason! Here’s a map.

Dinnertime

What time is dinner?

6:30 p.m. every night of the week. We also have brunch on Sundays at 11:30 a.m.

What if I miss dinner?

We don’t want you to go hungry! We save our leftovers for late dinners, lunch, and midnight snacking. The Two D kitchen is always open, and members can be found cooking food for themselves at any time of day.

Can I bring my friends to dinner?

The co-op has an open-guest policy — just bring them! Let the members cooking know if you’re bringing more than two or three, though, so they can plan ahead.

How do I visit?

Dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and you’re welcome to come by any day to visit the co-op. You’re also welcome to come at 4:30ish if you want to try out cooking with us. Email twod@princeton.edu to RSVP. Note that the door only opens with prox’s of co-op members, so just knock and someone will let you in. Here’s a map to help you find us.

The Food

I don’t eat anything with wheat, detest garlic, and am allergic to green beans. Can I still join the co-op?

Two D has had many members over the years with a wide range of food allergies and eating preferences. We are committed to ensuring that every member can eat at least one main dish at each meal.

Is there food during school vacations?

As long as there are members on campus during the academic year, there’s food in the co-op — even at times when eating clubs and dining halls are closed.

Is all of the food vegetarian?

Not all of the members are vegetarians, but the co-op kitchen is entirely meat-free. All of the food that we cook and eat is 100% vegetarian, and mostly organic. Two D is also vegan friendly. Many co-op members are vegans, and there are vegan options at every meal.

Where does the food come from?

Organic produce and dry goods are bulk-delivered to the co-op by truck every Tuesday. We also pick up bread, spices, and other groceries as needed.
