Baldwin Wallace University

About the program

At the beginning of the semester and at the middle or end of semester, students will table with campus iPads in the Student Union and ask students to donate a guest swipe to peers facing food insecurity. Campus dining will then distribute these donated swipes to students in need.

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus? Students who need additional swipes will fill out a form, providing their name, ID number, year in school, and a short explanation as to why they need additional swipes. Once submitted, the office will delegate swipes based on need and amount available.

Program Roots

Erin Neff started learning about food insecurity during her undergraduate degree. She worked with kids in the Cleveland, OH school districts and ended up going on an Alternative Break Trip focused on food insecurity. After a few conversations, research, and planning, she found Swipe Out Hunger and tried to see how it could fit at BW. With the guidance of the David and Francis Brain Center staff and support of Dining Services, as well as her fellowship, Erin developed this program.
