Food Services now offers payroll deduction for faculty, staff meal plans

UGA faculty and staff can now use post-tax payroll deduction to purchase a faculty and staff meal plan with UGA Food Services.

This new service allows employees to have the cost of a 10-block meal plan automatically withdrawn from their paycheck. The 10-block meal plan allows faculty and staff to eat in any of the five dining commons: Bolton Dining Commons, Oglethorpe Dining Commons, Snelling Dining Commons, Village Summit or the Niche.

The 10-block meal plan is available to full-time, benefits eligible faculty and staff members and provides participants with cost savings. The block plan provides an 18 percent savings on the regular cost of lunch and a 40 percent savings on the regular cost of dinner.

Blocks do not expire and additional blocks can be purchased in 10-block increments. Block plans are nonrefundable.

To purchase the plan, employees can visit the UGA Food Services website and click on the Purchase a Meal Plan button. After reaching the login page, the employee will enter his or her MyID and password. The option to purchase the plan will appear along with the option to pay using payroll deduction. The payroll deduction will be a single deduction of $98.44. The expected date of the deduction will be displayed at the time of purchase and a follow-up confirmation email will be sent.
