Any of the Block plans, whether it is the Block 160 or the Preferred or Preferred Plus Plans, are number specific so the Block 160 averages out to about 10 meals per week. Preferred Meal Plan averages out to about 2 meals per week and Preferred Plus averages out to about 3 meals per week. Carte Blanche, on the other hand is unlimited, other than the use of Simply to Go but we allow students to get STG as a swipe just like a regular meal. Under Is there a limit to how many times I can use my meal plan in the Top per week? Our old system used to not let students swipe again but we allow them in case they want to take it to go for later which helps with congestion due to CO
No, every meal plan (except for the unlimited Carte Blanche of course) is a block plan- that is the number of meals attached to it can be used at any time. The only exception to this has to do with Simply to Go. If Simply to Go is used during a meal period, you cannot use the TOP during the same meal period, you must wait until the next meal period to come back.
