Ducks Feeding Ducks FAQs

Where can I use my Ducks Feeding Ducks (DFD) funds?

You may use your DFD funds to purchase food at any of the campus food outlets. This includes University Housing’s dining venues, the EMU food vendors, The Duck Store food options, and all other campus cafés. You can also use DFD funds to order from campus eateries using Grubhub. The funds are limited to food purchases only, so you cannot purchase other merchandise.

Can I use it at more than one place?

Once the DFD funds are transferred to you, you have three days to use the $12. While the amount of the DFD deposit was set at $12 because this covers the average cost of a full meal, you might not use all of the funds at once. If you have a balance after your first purchase, you may use the remaining funds to purchase another meal.

I have used my one deposit for this term. What are my options?

The Feed the Flock initiative has a number of programs and the Office of the Dean of Students has additional resources available. Call 541-346-3216 to schedule a food security appointment with a basic needs coordinator.

I didn’t receive a confirmation or denial email. How can I tell if I received DFD funds?

If you did not receive an email, please email, call ID Card Services at 541-346-3113, or come by the ID Card Services office. You can also check your Duck Bucks and DFD balances on the GET app or through the GET online portal.

I didn’t use my deposit. Does it count toward my deposit for the term?

Yes. The process is automated and counts every transfer regardless of whether or not the funds were used. That is why it is important to check to make sure your application was processed. If you did not receive a confirmation email, you may still have received DFD funds. You can check your balance on the GET app or through the GET online portal.

Are the DFD funds added to my personal Duck Bucks account?

No. The DFD funds are added to your ID card as a separate account. When you present your ID card to pay for food, the vendor will see only the DFD balance. Once all DFD funds have been used, the next time you use your Duck Bucks, the vendor will see your Duck Bucks account balance.

How can I check my balance(s)? 

You can access your account through the GET portal or app. If there are DFD funds available, you will see that balance as well as your Duck Bucks account balance.

I have a small balance left of my DFD funds. Can I apply for more?

No. At this time, you are allowed one deposit for the term. Please email if you have questions.
