You can start with any amount, but the table below illustrates what you will need based on a 16-week semester and an average cost of $8.50 per meal. When the students scan the app or swipe their card, the exact amount of the purchase will come off their balance. There are no restrictions on frequency of card usage, meaning students can use their meal plan card as much or as little as needed.
Parents may add any dollar amount to their student’s Red Card Meal Plan as needed throughout the semester (keep in mind our Value Load Offers), and remaining account balances carry over from semester to semester and year to year.
Not sure how hungry your student will be? Start with a custom plan and add money as needed.
