About the program

Students with currently active meal plans are eligible to donate swipes and flex dollars that equal one meal in the Acansa Dining Hall. The 2021 inaugural Swipe Drive was held in mid-March. The Volunteer A-State Office and Student Government Association (SGA) safely tabled for three days so students could donate and apply for swipes. Swipes are then directly transferred into student accounts for easy access.
