Finlandia announces FinnFlexAugust 10, 2021
New to Fall 2021, Finlandia University announces FinnFlex. A new meal plan program scheduled for rollout by October 1, FinnFlex provides students ‘flex’ in their diets with funds that can be used at off-campus restaurants through newly formed partnerships. The pilot program, led by Finlandia Dean of Students Erin Barnett, will also feature the new service through on-campus vending machines. All meal plans, except Block Plans, will include varying amounts of FinnFlex to spend.
“Our students have expressed an interest in more dining options, so we listened and responded by finding a way to partner with local establishments. FinnFlex is another way that Finlandia is demonstrating its commitment to our local community and student satisfaction,” Barnett said.
Approved FinnFlex vendors for Fall 2021 include Queen City Burger Company and Milly’s, eateries right down the street from FinnU. FinnFlex may also be used via PepsiCo vending machines found on-campus.
“When Finlandia approached us last spring about being involved in this program we couldn’t have been more excited! We love seeing our Finlandia student neighbors and appreciate them being a part of our community,” Dave Guizzetti, co-owner of Queen City Burger said.
Participating locations will be supplied with card readers that will swipe student ID cards housing FinnFlex. Students are encouraged to enjoy these additional venue options and may add to their FinnFlex account at any time. As Finlandia continues to develop new partnerships, students can look forward to the growing possibilities with FinnFlex!
All on-campus students will be automatically enrolled in the Limitless Plan, but students with 30+ credits earned may opt into a different plan by August 23 at 4 p.m.. If students wish to request a meal plan other than the Limitless Plan, they may complete this form.Tags: Dining Services, Finlandia, FinnFlex, Meal Plans, Milly's, PepsiCo, Queen City Burger Company
