[accordion title="Where can I use the Faculty and Staff Meal Plan?"]The Faculty and Staff Meal Plan is accepted at York University Food Services locations operated by Aramark on both the Keele and Glendon campuses. A complete list of participating locations appears below.

Please note that the Faculty and Staff Meal Plan is not accepted at locations in York Lanes, Student Centre or the Schulich School of Business.

Purchase food at a participating location using your YU-card. The amount of your purchase will be automatically deducted from your Meal Plan accounts. Bonus dollars will be redeemed first, followed by the Meal Plan dollars you purchased.[/accordion]
[accordion title="What happens when I run out of Meal Plan and bonus dollars?"]You can purchase another Meal Plan at any time. When you purchase a new Meal Plan, you will also receive a new allocation of bonus dollars.

If you run out of Meal Plan and bonus dollars and do not purchase another Meal Plan, you must have funds in your Flex account to continue purchasing food with your YU-card.

Yes, you can also add Flex Dollars to your YU-card, in addition to your Faculty and Staff Meal Plan. Flex dollars can continue to be used at any food outlet on campus and other retail outlets like the York University Bookstore.

Due to the provision of the bonus dollars, Faculty and Staff Meal Plan funds cannot be transferred to the Flex account.[/accordion]
[accordion title="What if I leave York University and there is still money on my account?"]The Faculty and Staff Meal Plan is fully refundable. Bonus dollars are not refundable. Any bonus dollars allocated to your Plan (whether spent or not) will be deducted from the remaining balance prior to any refund being made. Examples:

  1. $250 Plan purchased with $25 bonus dollars. $10 bonus dollars were spent, while no Plan dollars were spent. The refund available would be the remaining $250 Plan dollars, less the $10 bonus dollars that were spent, for a refund of $240.
  2. $250 Plan purchased with $25 bonus dollars. $25 bonus dollars were spent, and $100 Plan dollars were spent. The refund available would be the remaining $150 Plan dollars, less the $25 bonus dollars that were spent, for a refund of $125.
