Meal Equivalency

Exchange a meal for an equivalent at your favorite National brand or a Grab N' Go combo in the Convenience stores! Great way to add variety into your daily meals!

Meal Equivalency is a special feature reserved for students who have a campus meal plan. This feature gives students the opportunity to exchange one residential (PCB Café or Southern Kitchen) meal swipe for a meal of equal value at a retail location or a convenience store (POD).

Meal equivalency really adds value to campus meal plans. For example, if a student wants to eat at Chick-fil-A one day for dinner instead of PCB Café or the Southern Kitchen, the student has the option of using a meal swipe to cover $4.85 of the purchase. If the total comes out to be more, the leftover amount can be paid using dining dollars, cash, or credit card. (i.e. - If the total is $5.85, students would only have to pay the extra $1.00)

Below is a link that provides information on what times our retail locations accept Meal Equivalency as well as the dollar amount that is covered by the meal swipe.

Dining Dollars can be used at all Volunteer dining locations including Convenience Stores. Dining Dollars roll over from fall to spring semester and you can add more anytime!
