This year, CAV Cash and meal exchange can no longer be used at locations that had this system in the past.

Some businesses were not happy with their experience with CAV Cash. “They were charging a pretty hefty rate,” Dan Kateusz, owner of So Fun! Yogurt, said.

There is a chance you did not know CAV Cash existed or how it worked. CAV Cash is a voluntary debit account that is attached to the Cabrini issued student ID card.

CAV Cash can be used on campus at CAVS Corner, Jazzman’s, Sandella’s and the RAC Grille.

Students could have also used CAV Cash at locations off campus such as Chinese Delight Restaurant, CVS Pharmacy, Domino’s Pizza, Real Pizza, So Fun! Frozen Yogurt, West Ave Pizza & Grill and Bertucci’s.

When you go to the Cabrini College dining services page it shows these businesses as places you can use CAV Cash. As of recently, none of these places take CAV Cash anymore.

West Ave Pizza & Grill wasn’t getting enough service from CAV Cash. Chinese Delight was losing money from it, creating an unpleasant experience for the business. “The person who started this program is very smart but only for himself,” Eline Yang, manager of Chinese Delight, said. “We actually lost money. Nobody will participate I guarantee you.”

Aside from losing CAV Cash, students will be happy to know that meal exchange is now being offered from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the RAC, the popular late night dining option at Cabrini. The RAC gets extremely busy at night because once CAVS Corner and Jazzman’s close at 7:30 p.m. it is the only dining area left on campus that is open.

With meal exchange being a popular choice on campus over the last few years it should give students more flexibility on dining options. It allows students to exchange their meal during a meal period in CAVS Corner for a meal in Jazzman’s, Sandella’s and now the RAC from Monday through Friday.

“I go to the RAC all the time but my flex would run out so quickly that I couldn’t go any more towards the end of the semester,” Kyle Barth, junior biology major, said. “Now with meal exchange at the RAC I can conserve my flex a little better and be able to go more often.”

The meal exchange times and cash equivalence in Jazzman’s and Sandella’s have not changed from last year. It is still 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for $3, 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for $5 and 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for $5.
