Students shouldn’t have to choose between textbooks and food! The HSRC MealBux program offers eligible students a way to pay for a few meals each week. They can only be used on campus. After you submit an application and it's approved, the money is deposited onto your student ID card. It can be spent at any campus food vendor location.

Within the application, there are more detailed explanations of the documentation required to apply. Please follow the link to get a clear understanding of what is needed.
