We all know the best way to distract yourself from looming tests and essays is to eat. And I mean really eat. Not to mention when you're in a city like Richmond, your options are insane. The only problem is your summer job money only can go so far.

How many times can you get late night Christian's Pizza or indulge in a treat from Carytown Cupcakes before you run out of cash? Luckily, for students in the Richmond area (I mean you VCU and UR) there's this great new start-up, Get Dippy, that can help you out.
