RED CARD COVID-19 INFORMATION

We have been receiving a lot of great questions from parents and students about how we are handling the uncertain nature of the upcoming semester. We have posted some of the most requested information below. Please call our office at (608) 256-2273 if you have any questions about our program that are not addressed. Current office hours are M-F, 9am-5pm

  • You can start a Red Card Meal Plan with any dollar amount. If you have any concerns about the upcoming semester, our suggestion is that you start with a smaller initial deposit and add funds to the account as needed.
  • If for any reason your student needs to leave school early this fall, any remaining balance will just carry over to spring semester or you can request a full refund for the remaining amount. Remaining Red Card Meal Plan account balances always carry over from semester to semester and year to year.
  • Each school year we work with our partner merchants to provide lots of savings opportunities for our cardholders in the form of value load coupons, Restaurant of the Week offers and other promotions. We will still have lots of savings opportunities this fall, but there will most likely be less available deals than in the past. Many of our merchant partners are working hard just to keep their heads above water right now, and discounts and promotions may not be possible for all locations. These restaurants, coffee shops and cafes that we all love really need our support right now.

How can Red Card keep your student eating the things they love while giving you peace of mind that they are staying safe?

RED CARD IS A 100% CONTACTLESS PAYMENT SYSTEM

RED CARD IS INTEGRATED WITH EAT STREET AND FRESH MADISON MARKET DELIVERY SYSTEMS

MADISON IS IN DANE COUNTY, THE MOST RESTRICTIVE COUNTY IN WISCONSIN

WHAT IS THE RED CARD MEAL PLAN?

The Red Card Meal Plan is a prepaid dining and discount app that allows students to buy groceries at Fresh Madison Market and pay for meals at an always-expanding list of 90 close-to-campus, student-favorite locations in Madison. Students select their food, scan the barcode on the Red Card app, and the exact amount is deducted from their account. You can start a Red Card Meal Plan with any dollar amount, and balances carry over from semester to semester, year to year— so there are never any wasted dollars.

The Red Card Meal Plan is a great way to help your student budget his or her food money, and avoid costly ATM fees, overdraft penalties and interest charges. Parents are assured that food money is spent as intended, and student dining dollars are stretched as far as possible through exclusive cardholder coupons, deals and discounts.
