Voluntary Meal Plans & MECA Bucks
50 Block Plan:
This plan was created for commuter students. The 50 Meal Block plan allows you to join your classmates for 50 meals in the cafe during the school year. Plans include $50 in MECA Bucks to help with cravings between meals. Use it up in a semester? No worries, you can purchase an additional 50 Block plan when needed.
A 25 Meal Block Plan is available for Faculty and Staff. This plan may be purchased through the Business Services Office and can be paid for through payroll deduction.
MECA Bucks allow students, faculty, and staff the convenience of making tax-free purchases in the café with your MECA ID. MECA Bucks can be added to your card in $50 increments at any time during the academic year. You do not need a meal plan to purchase MECA Bucks. Students on meal plans may add additional MECA Bucks to their cards at any time.
