All residential students are required to purchase a meal plan. There are several meal plan options available to you. Each meal plan consists of Meal Swipes, Old Gold Swipes, and Food Dollars. Choose the one that best matches your dining lifestyle. Visit the Wake Forest Dining Services website for more information on meal plans and pricing.
Meal Swipes are used to access the all-you-care-to-eat locations: the Fresh Food Company and the Magnolia Room. These locations feature a variety of stations including a deli, salad bar, made-to-order Mongolian Grill, Southern Kitchen, pizza, and steamed vegetables.
Food Dollars work like a debit account. Each time a purchase is made, the amount is deducted from the balance in your account. Food Dollars can be used at any campus dining location. Additional Food Dollars can be added to your account at any time by visiting Wake Forest Dining Services website or the dining office located in Reynolda Hall 12.
Old Gold Swipes
Old Gold Swipes are included in your total number of meals and serve as enhancements to the traditional meals. A portion of your meal swipes are considered Old Gold. In addition to their usage as traditional meal swipes, they may be used to purchase combo meals in the following locations: Subway, Chick-fil-A, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Starbucks, Take Two Deli & Grill, Forest Greens, Shorty’s Late Night, the dining space in Poteat Residence Hall, Einstein Bros Bagels, and Magnolia Room (Weekly Old Gold Dinners).
