Food Services is responsible for the following:
The AppCard works as a multifunction ASU photo ID card that allows access to meal plan accounts, express accounts, and many other services offered by ASU.
Meal Plans operate on a declining balance system, which makes it possible for students to decide where and when to spend their money. We offer four declining balance Meal Plans, which are accepted in all dining units of Appalachian Food Services, The Market (campus convenience stores), Crossroads Coffee House and all vending machines. Students living in residence halls are required to select a Meal Plan each semester. Students living off-campus may choose to purchase a Meal Plan.
Appalachian Express Accounts
The Appalachian Express Account is an optional account for students, faculty or staff. This account allows for funds to be deposited and then accessed by the AppCard in specific campus locations. The Appalachian Express Account is separate from the Meal Account, but it is still accessed by the AppCard.
Food Services operates numerous dining units on campus. We also post up-to-date facility information, operating schedules and weekly menus.
All food items on our serving lines are priced individually; so that, you may choose what you want to eat. The dining units accept the AppCard (with either Meal Plan or Express Account balances), MasterCard, Visa or cash for payment.
Catering & Special Events
Appalachian Food Services Catering offers a wide range of services, from a formal dinner, to a coffee break or an outdoor event for customers affiliated with Appalachian State University (faculty, staff, students and parents).
Appalachian Food Services is here to serve you. Please contact us with any suggestions, concerns or opinions about any of our operations or policies.
