Definition of Meal Exchange as used in Meal Plans below: Meal plans A, B, D and the Commuter Block 50 offer Meal Exchange, allowing students to use a Meal Swipe in exchange for a designated to-go combo meal at campus a la carte beyond our all-you-care-to-eat dining halls. A combo meal consists of a select entrée option, side and beverage and is intended to provide a full meal replacement. Students can enjoy 1 meal exchange per day, Monday through Friday, at retail outlets such as Daily Zen and Florham Perk located on the Florham Campus and Dickinson Café and the Bridge Café on the Metropolitan Campus. Meal Exchange is not in addition to the weekly meal allotment but rather a replacement. Use of a meal exchange reduces the available meals for the week. For example, Meal Plan B provides 10 meals per week, of which 5 can be used as a meal exchange. The total available weekly meals for Meal Plan B is 10, no matter how many meal exchanges are used that week. For the Commuter Block 50 plan, all 50 meals can be used as a meal exchange if no more than 5 meals per week are used.
