                 i. Waterloo is closer to the bottom in terms of cost of products (ie: ours cost less than
                     some universities)
                ii. Hunter’s comment – quality and serving size of food is not worth the price at Waterloo
               iii. Lee – food services needs specific and immediate feedback about issues with the

                         1. Option: have LCD screen to show nutritional information; have touch screen at
                              food counter to get nutritional facts, information on how to eat healthy during
                              exams, etc.

9.    Current Issues
       a. 10-11 partners off campus use flex dollars
                 i. Burger King may be going in where HMV used to be – contacted them to see if we can
                     use WatCard there
                         1. Student view: good to have more options; need to know that if flex dollars are
                              used for venues off campus, students are charged $1
                         2. Overall, good reception from FAB members to have WatCard at Burger King
                ii. Lee will approach Sweet Dreams with proposition of using WatCard
                         1. Being part of some on campus clubs gives you deals at Sweet Dreams, so might
                              be beneficial to students for it to be WatCard accessible
