Central Michigan University will be offering a new meal plan option for on-campus students during the 2020 school year.

According to Executive Director of Auxiliary Services Cal Seeyle, this new plan offer is meant to provide an option for students with concerns about social distancing.

"It is a 19-meal plan which allows a student with this plan to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on the weekends," Seeyle said. "Due to service restrictions due to COVID-19, residential restaurants will look differently with service and seating capacity limitations."

Seelye added that this option should make it easier for students who want to eat during all meal periods without having to pay for the all-access plans.

The 19-meal plan will be added to the already offered All-Access 300, All-Access 200, Central 16 and Central 12. The 19-meal plan will offer students 19 meals a week, $225 worth of Flex dollars and six guest passes for $2,538 a semester.
