How does my Clever Cuisine Eating Plan work? June 10, 2020 Your campus card is automatically activated with your Eating Plan and we top-up your Clever Cuisine balance early Saturday morning so it is ready for you to use for Saturday morning breakfast. A Clever Cuisine week runs Saturday to Friday and you need to spend the balance by the end of Friday. Unless you have specifically opted for a vacation Eating Plan (these are not always available) your Eating Plan runs term-time and Welcome Week only. All our Eating Plans currently operate as declining balance plans, so you start the Saturday with the full balance applicable to your plan (i.e. Silver, Gold or Platinum) and spend it over the course of the week with the balance declining as you do so.
