The UConn Stamford Local Eatery Meal Plan is a new program that connects hungry Huskies with Stamford’s local eateries. The meal plan allows students to purchase blocks of meals for use at off-campus, independent, restaurants. Participating restaurants will provide healthy, well-balanced options and accommodate dietary restrictions when possible.
