Assunto:  also "lunch card" VALE REFEIÇÃO, VALE
 
Mensagem:  "Lunch card" which is not universal in the same sense as "vale-refeição" is in Brazil, but a "lunch card" can be used for a pre-paid number of meals within a specific school, or event such as a business expo, workshop, etc. Some public schools may have lunch cards too, others just keep track of payment on a computer at the cash register inside the cafeteria. 

By law, companies in the US don't have to pay for the employee meals. But there are meal allowances for employees travelling on business. 

Once I was visiting a friend at an American university and he used his "lunch card" in the magnetic reader of a vending machine and got snacks for both of us. I asked how that card worked and he told me that he'd only have to pay for that purchase at the end of the month.
