Understanding Basic & Flex


Understand the difference between Basic & Flex Dollars

 

Basic Dollars

Basic” funds are the tax-exempt portion of your Student Meal Plan. 

Any purchase of a meal on campus (with the exception of meals from the Blind Duck, Chatime, Duck Stop, food trucks, and most vending machines) qualifies as a Basic purchase

 

Flex Account

Flex” funds can be used to purchase all items that don't qualify as a Basic-eligible meal.

You can use your Flex funds for:

  • Snack items
  • Beverages
  • Convenience items
  • Confectionary
  • Grocery items
  • Vending machines with card readers
  • The Blind Duck (in the Student Centre)
  • Chatime (in the Student Centre)
  • The Duck Stop (in the Student Centre)
  • Participating food trucks on campus
