We are thrilled to announce the launch of a partnership between Swipe Out Hunger and Cal State University Monterey Bay!
The Sodexo Dining team launched the first Swipe Out Hunger drive in November of 2016 during the annual Harvest Turkey Dinner. Students in attendance were encouraged to donate up to 5 block meals which were then distributed in the form of meal vouchers at the monthly campus pantry pop up. 100 block meals were donated!
For the November 2017 drive, Sodexo partnered with the Dean of Students Office case managers to distribute meal vouchers to students they work with. 111 block meals were donated!
The program is currently being led by Krystal Bocanegra, Marketing Sustainability Coordinator with Sodexo. Krystal aims to grow the program's presence on campus and encourage more students to donate in 2018! If you have questions you can contact her at Krystal.Bocanegra@sodexo.com
