A provision to approve unlimited meals and snacks for Division I student-athletes has tentatively been agreed upon by an NCAA Legislative Council.

The rule is in addition to the meal plans provided through each student-athletes scholarship, which previously allocated a total of three meals a day or food stipend.

Members of the Legislative Council have been in open discussions about the issue in order to ensure that all student-athletes get the necessary nutrition they require without jeopardizing provisions put forth in Pell Grants or any other types of federal aid.

The Division I Board of Directors will meet on April 24 to make a final decision on the matter.
