As we all know, it is a struggle to find cheap, easy and healthy food, especially during the hectic, stressful week of finals. But lucky for you, DIG came up with a life-saving list of options that will get you through your exam schedule.

Instead of waiting in a long line when you are in a rush, Tapingo, an app on your phone, offers you the ease of picking exactly what you want and paying for it over your phone. It only takes a few minutes for your food to be ready, so you can walk in, skip to the front of the line and pick up your food. Here is a list of a few of the places Tapingo offers the pick-up option:


The Salad Shop
