Wellesley Fresh Representative addresses concerns over meal plans
In response to concerns voiced by the Wellesley student body, a representative from Wellesley Fresh explained the reasoning behind the unlimited meal plan and the potential for a change in the distant future. The representative explained that the meal plan is unlimited to promote and enhance the community atmosphere of Wellesley. Also, the meal plan is unlimited so students do not have to worry about rationing meals on top of all the other things they juggle. If the meal plan were to change, it would be difficult to implement because all dining halls would have to be redesigned to ensure that students are swiping in and following the meal plan. However, changing the meal plan seems to be extremely implausible in this moment but has not been ruled out completely. It could be reconsidered many years in the future.
