Make Meal Plans Voluntary at Worcester State University

Intentionally left blank

The mandatory meal plan undermines our dietary needs, diminishes our overall satisfaction and health, and costs us exorbitant sums of money. Students are paying up to $18 for a single meal swipe! Prices range from a 'low' of $2,103 to a high of $2,315 per semester. Resident students are required to pay at least $16,824 over four years! The options available for those with dietary restrictions, such as celiacs, vegans, and those with dairy allergies are very limited, and even students without restrictions complain about the limited options, limited hours, and poor quality of the food. I hereby petition to end mandatory meal plans for all students so that all students are permitted to opt out of purchasing a meal plan.
