Eat Well on Campus

50 wellness points

The University wants to make it easier for you to get rewarded for eating healthy right on campus. When you participate in the Eat Well on Campus program, you’ll receive points based on what you buy at over 30 University Dining Services locations on the East Bank, West Bank, and St. Paul campuses.

When you buy enough food to earn at least 50 points in the program, you’ll also earn 50 wellness points. University Dining Services has a complete list of locations and healthy food items (PDF) on their website.

How to Sign Up and Participate

To enroll in Eat Well on Campus, call the Meal Plan Office at (612) 624-0558 or email them at mealplan@umn.edu

Once enrolled in the program, you’ll need to buy food with your U Card using either FlexDine or Gopher Gold to get credit for your healthy purchases. Always tell the cashier when using your U Card that you want to use FlexDine or Gopher GOLD. You can find more about how to get FlexDine here, and you can purchase Gopher Gold here.

You can go to the Eat Well on Campus page for more information.

Earn Wellness Points

You can enroll in the program at any time of the year. Your points will be tracked from October 1, 2016, to August 31, 2017. You’ll get an email update about your earned points every month from the meal plan office. Once you buy enough healthy food items to earn 50 points, you will automatically earn 50 wellness points.

It may take up to six weeks for those wellness points to show up in your StayWell Online account, depending on file processing time.

Note: all the eligible food items have been selected by a dietician and may be updated throughout the year to make sure there’s a great variety and to keep up with menu changes.
