In 2013 Humboldt State began allowing students to donate leftover J points to help stock the campus food pantry. In 2018 the University launched a new and improved J point transfer program through a collaborative effort between health educator Ravin Craig, Dining Services, and the Oh! Snap team.
During the last two weeks of the spring semester students are able to sign up to donate unused J points at tables outside of the dining halls. These points are now redistributed in increments of $35 to the accounts of students who are facing food insecurity through referrals from various departments across campus, including Reslife and the Dean of Students Office. In order to qualify students must attempt to apply for CalFresh and have less than $35 worth of points in their account.
