If the minimum number of components for each meal are not chosen by the student, a la carte charges will be charged.
● Must choose at least three of the four offered items to make a meal.
● Must choose at least three of the five offered components to make a meal.
A la Carte:
● Extra entrees, extra sides, chips, ice cream, cookies, etc. are all charged a la carte prices and are not included in the meal.
