Frequently Asked Questions
Is FEED U available for everyone?
FEED U is initially available in the App Store for anyone to download. It will soon be offered in Google Play for Android users. Any user can send / receive food from national merchants on the platform. However, local ordering is only available at schools where FEED U officially launches.
Users can also purchase food for themselves and earn valuable BiteCoins for every purchase.
Does the student need to have an account in FeedU to be gifted food?
Yes! Only people that have an existing account can receive food. For the parents or family members to send food to their child, they can go to www.FeedU.app and they would be able to send food. Phone number, name, and user name would be needed.
Does FEED U offer delivery?
Delivery is available from restaurants on the platform that use their own drivers (not relying on third party fulfillment). If a specific restaurant on the FEED U platform offers delivery as an option in their profile, then delivery from that specific restaurant is available. Otherwise, orders from local restaurants are pickup / takeout only.
As a user, when I receive a notification that someone "fed" me, what are my options?
When you #GetFed food from a local restaurant, your options are to 1) accept the order for immediate delivery / pickup within 30-40 minutes; 2) reschedule the order for a future day & time. If you #GetFed food from a national merchant, the order will be shipped and received in 7-10 days. Distinctions for each restaurant / merchant are listed in their profile on the app.
What are BiteCoins?
BiteCoins are both REWARDS earned from each purchase and GIFTS / CURRENCY that can be used to purchase food for users. This dynamic in-app currency can also be transferred between users and redeemed for FEED U merchandise.
How can I pay for food and BiteCoins?
All purchases can be made via ApplePay and credit/debit cards.
