FAST (Faculty and Academic Staff) Points are not new to UW-Green Bay. They have been in place for three to four years. What are they? They are prepaid declining balance funds you can purchase and load onto your official University ID for use at any Chartwells-managed food serving location on campus. This spring, through February 10, the FAST 200 and 300 Points Plans include $15 in bonus FAST points through the generosity of Chartwells. When customers use their “points” in the Marketplace they will receive a $0.50 discount bringing the net cost of breakfast to $5.75, lunch to $6.25, and dinner to $6.75 (+ sales tax).
FAST Meal Plans are new to UW-Green Bay and serve as option for staff and faculty to purchase meals in a larger quantity at prices-per-meal lower than paying with cash, credit or points.

To-Go containers available — All FAST Plan customers will receive a reusable To-Go container to use for take-out meals from the Marketplace inside Leona Cloud Commons.

FAST Points may be purchased at the University Ticketing and Information Center and will be active on an ID within 48 hours of purchase. All purchases are taxable. FAST Points do not expire unless an individual is no longer employed with the University. For more information about FAST Points, please contact Patrick Niles at x2550.
