Faculty & Professional Staff can purchase a 10-meal meal plan option for $50. This plan is only good in the dining hall. Meals are attached to your Franklin & Marshall ID card and can be used for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This meal plan option replaces the Cinch card program as the Cinch card program is phased out. To enroll in the 10-meal plan, employees may stop by the Cashier Window in the Diplomat Exchange, located in Steinman College Center to make your payment.  Accounts will be activated the next business day. 

Franklin & Marshall College offers the Ben's Bucks program to be the ultimate compliment to your college experience. Of course your ID card can be used for dining on-campus but we realize that students and parents want more. So we partnered with your favorite off-campus merchants to give you the ultimate flexibility, variety and value you deserve. Ben’s Bucks is a prepaid spending account on your Franklin & Marshall ID Card offering a convenient and secure way to make purchases on and around campus, designed to eliminate the need to carry cash or other cards. A deposit to Ben’s Bucks must be made before using it for purchases. To open your account please visit here.
