This meal plan is also available to any Woodbury University student and may be purchased through the Business Office at the time of registration each semester. Information about the meal plan is also available at the Office of Student Affairs as well as the Business Office.
No meal refunds will be given under any circumstances. Students missing meals because of work or authorized campus activities are eligible for the sack meal program.
Students have a University Card which serves as a multipurpose card that includes their meal card, library card, ID card, etc. All students will need to have their photo taken in the library during the first week of Fall Semester to be issued a University Card. Students will need to pick up their University Card and activate their flex dollar account at the beginning of the Fall Semester. Students must bring their University Card to every meal.
If your University Card, which includes your Meal Card, is lost or stolen, you must notify the Manager at New Woody's Café and the University Library immediately. Until you replace or find your lost University Card, you will be required to pay $5.00 for each meal you eat.
The guidelines for refunding this money are as follows:
- If the ID Card is presented by the end of the week, all money paid during the week will be refunded.
- If the ID Card is not replaced by dinner on Friday, the student will forfeit all money paid for that week.
- Once a card is reported as stolen or lost, it is inactivated and the electronic access unit will sound an alarm if use of the card is attempted. Fraudulent use of any meal card will immediately be reported to the Office of Student Affairs for appropriate judicial action.
A Word about Flex Dollars
Additional flex dollars may be purchased at New Woody's Café. If your University Card is lost or stolen, you should notify the Manager at New Woody's Café Cafe immediately.
The majority of items in the beverage cooler are not offered as part of the meal plan allowance. However, they may be purchased with flex dollars. Items are appropriately marked.
Items such as large bags of chips or candy bars are not offered as part of the meal plan allowance but may be purchased with flex dollars.
Vegetarian Meals/Special Diets
Vegetarian meals are prepared daily as part of the regular dining menu. Any student who possesses a meal plan and has been placed on a limited diet by a physician should notify the Manager of New Woody's Café to plan special menu items.
In the event a campus activity or work schedule prevents a student from eating during regular meal hours, he/she may request a sack meal. All sack meals must be requested at least 24 hours before they are to be picked up. A University Card must be provided at the time the sack meal is arranged or at the time of pick-up. Any student who does not pick up a pre-arranged sack meal for two days will automatically be dropped from the sack meal plan.
Policy on Sick Trays
All students unable to eat at New Woody's Café because of illness will be provided a meal by observing the following procedure:
- A sick tray request must be made by a member of the Residence Life Staff.
- The University Card of the person who is sick must accompany the sick tray request.
- The sick tray may be obtained from the Manager or Chef on duty.
Faculty/Staff Lunch Program
The Office of Student Affairs and New Woody's Café co-sponsor the Faculty/Staff Lunch Program. Students may invite any faculty or staff member to New Woody's Café for a free meal. This idea is to encourage students, faculty, and staff to get to know each other better on an informal basis. Program Guidelines of the Faculty/Staff Lunch Program:
- Any Woodbury student enrolled at least half-time is eligible to participate.
- A student may invite any current Woodbury faculty member or staff person employed at least half-time by the University.
- The student checks out a flex dollar card from the Office of Student Affairs (or the Weekend College Office on weekends.) New Woody's Café will allow the student to use the card to pay for the faculty/staff member’s meal (up to $6.00 maximum) and the student pays for his or her own meal with cash or a University/Meal Card. The flex dollars are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Faculty and staff members may also participate in the Faculty/Staff Lunch Program by taking a student to the cafe. The procedures are the same as described above.
New Woody's Café is happy to provide a meal for a resident student’s parents who may be visiting. (Limit: Twice per year.)
Friends Fly Free (on your flex dollars...)
Students may use their flex dollars to purchase meals for friends. Students may not use their meal card to purchase meals for others. Note: Any meal card used by someone other than the proper owner will be confiscated and turned over to the Office of Student Affairs for appropriate judicial action.
Students desiring part-time employment in New Woody's Café should speak with the Manager. Various jobs are offered with flexible hours, competitive wages, as well as an excellent place to work.
Posting of Notices and Menus

Menus for resident meals will be posted at various locations on campus each week. You may request copies of the weekly menu from the Manager. E-mail copies are also available by request.
