Budgie Meal

The 'Budgie Meal' is a concept that was first used at the University of Auckland in the early 1990s, offering staff and students on a budget the opportunity to purchase a substantial meal from an array of cuisines across campus. The majority of our retailers now have a Budgie Meal available on their menus. The meals are $6.50 or under and consist of protein, vegetables and carbohydrate.
