Flex Meals on Weekends

Dining Halls close at 7 pm on weekends compared to 8:30 on weekdays. This makes it difficult for all students to have access to meals when they are out at football games or attend activities on campus. When the dining hall closes, many students (especially freshman/first-year) don't have food in dorms, so they end up skipping meals altogether or just consuming snacks. This isn't feasible for students to keep doing. Flex Meals need to be an option so students can access their meal plans for more than just five days a week. If Flex Meals were available during the weekends, students would access better food and would actually fulfill their food needs. Students would utilize Flex Meals on the weekends if they were an option.
