Meal Exchange


What is Meal Exchange?

Meal Exchange is a bonus convenience option to your dining experience if you have the following meal plans: Unlimited, Sparky’s Favorite, Maroon, Gold, Barrett Unlimited, Platinum, Silver, Barrett Maroon, All Commuter Dining Passes and Faculty & Staff. Use it when you can’t get to the dining halls to eat; but remember, your best value is to use a meal swipe at the dining halls or use your M&G dollars. Meal Exchange should only be used when you are on the go and want to keep going. Choose one entrée, one side, and one drink from our Meal Exchange menus. No substitutions or exceptions. Your Meal Exchange bucket contains two swipes per day that reset daily. You are exchanging a dining hall swipe for an on-the-go entrée, side and drink. Vegan, vegetarian and made without Gluten items are available on our Meal Exchange menu.
