Welcome to Swipe Out Hunger

Who we are

Swipe Out Hunger partners with colleges to end student hunger. We operate in 26 states and on dozens of campuses, having served 1.6 million nourishing dining hall meals to date. Our work has gained recognized by the Obama White House, the New York Times and Forbes' 30 Under 30 list.

We started as a grassroots movement at UCLA and have grown campus by campus into a nationwide movement and serve as a thought leader on issues of college student hunger. 

How we do it

We provide both common sense and innovative solutions to campus hunger including our premier program, “The Swipe Drive” where students with extra dining hall meal swipes can donate them to their peers. We've written and helped pass tens of millions of dollars in legislation to support anti-hunger work on campus. 

Our future

Over the next few years, we will grow onto new universities both organically and through strategic and systematic partnerships. We will reach hundreds of thousands of college students– America’s future leaders. We will grow and change the university food service industry, we will no longer be seen as an innovation, but the norm.


Swipe Out Hunger has been recognized by The White House, Forbes, The Case Foundation, and other influencers as a benchmark for positive change on America's college campuses and an emerging leader in the nonprofit field of hunger awareness and alleviation.  Check out our press page for more information!
