Return to a Free Snackbar for Those With the Meal Plan-UVI STT

As an on-campus student at the University of the Virgin Islands, you must pay for either Plan A or Plan B of the meal plan, which costs between $2,025-$2,890. That's a total of possibly $5,780 a year, which easily becomes $23,120 in your four years.

Now, usually, we have our main hotline times from 7AM to 9AM. Then the caf is closed from 9-11:30. Then, from 11:30AM-2PM, we have our hotline times for lunch. If we cannot make it to lunch for any reason(class or having to be somewhere for that given time), we defaulted to the 2PM-4:30PM snack bar, which sells burgers and hotdogs. However, now UVI is trying to charge use of this snackbar. The charge is $9.50 for a Subway-styled sandwich. The same thing happens if you miss the 4:30-7PM lunch. You're stuck hungry until morning unless you have money to pay the $9.50 for the sandwich between the hours of 7-9PM. 

It's time that we stand up so that this will change! WE CANNOT PAY EXTRA FOR MEALS WHEN WE DIDN'T EVEN USE OUR SWIPES!
