Students don’t want to pay for food cards

Students at Plymouth Marjon University have said that “they would rather pay less on rent than have a wallet of money that can only be used in 3 places.”

The food card is a mandatory purchase at £800 for first year students living on campus and is integrated into their rent payment.

The card is unpopular among students living on campus at Marjon.

Kai Bloor, a student, said: “It is unfair. Students should be able to choose how they would like to spend their money rather than be forced to buy the card.”

Despite the unpopularity, students do still use their food cards because they feel they need to make the most of the card they can’t avoid getting.
