You may redeem one per meal period.

MEAL EXCHANGE

A Meal Exchange (ME) is a set retail combo that can be used at select on-campus retail locations. You can typically get an entrée, side, and drink for a meal swipe. ME is offered at Greens & Grains, Nakiri, La Sabrosa, Louis' Deli, The Hoot Market and The Stein, so variety abounds!
