FAST Meal Plans and FAST Points
FAST Points are not new to UW-Green Bay. They have been in place for 3-4 years. They are pre-paid declining balance funds you can purchase and load onto your official University ID for use at any Chartwells-managed food serving location on campus. This spring, through February 10, the FAST 200 and 300 Points Plans include $15 in bonus FAST points through the generosity of Chartwells. When customers use their “points” in the Marketplace they will receive a $0.50 discount bringing the net cost of breakfast to $5.75, lunch to $6.25, and dinner to $6.75 (+ sales tax).
FAST Meal Plans are new to UW-Green Bay and serve as option for staff and faculty to purchase meals in a larger quantity at prices-per-meal lower than paying with cash, credit or points. This Spring’s FAST 75 Block Plan, at the cost of $425, equates to a cost-per-meal of $5.66 plus there are $25* in FAST Points for when you don’t need or want a full meal. For this spring, a new all stainless steel mug is being given to new and renewing FAST 75 Block Plan customers. In addition, all FAST Plan customers will receive a reusable To-Go container to use for take-out meals from the Marketplace inside Leona Cloud Commons. Details on how to use the To-Go containers will be shared with all who participate and eventually posted on-line (https://new.dineoncampus.com/uwgb). The block meals and FAST points on all FAST Plans will remain on your University ID account until they are used. They can also be used for combo meals in the retail operations.
