How do Block Meals work?

Block meals are designed to be affordable and convenient. After signing up for a plan, the meals (swipes) are loaded onto your BGSU identification card. You present your ID at the entrance of The Oaks Dining Center or Carillon Place Dining Center to redeem a swipe. Your unused swipes remain on your card until the end of the academic year at which point they will expire.

How do Falcon Dollars work?

Falcon Dollars are designed to offer flexibility. After signing up for your plan, if chosen, Falcon Dollars are added to your BGSU Identification Card. When checking out at any of the BGSU Dining locations, you present your card and the amount of your purchase will be deducted from the balance of your plan. Falcon Dollars may also be used to pay door price at the all you care to eat facilities.

To purchase a plan or to add Falcon Dollars call our office at 419.372.7933.
