Cornell University

About the program

During a designated donation period, students can donate one bonus meal from their current meal plan by stopping by booths at select locations or by emailing dining@cornell.edu. These meals are then redistributed to students facing food insecurity on campus.


Are you a student experiencing food insecurity? Students experiencing food insecurity should go to the Dean of Students website under First-Generation and Low-Income Student Support and complete the Bonus Meal form. Eligible students can use their swipes to access meals in all of Cornell Dining’s All You Care to Eat Dining Rooms. Check out our Campus Resources section below for more information on getting connected to the First Generation and Low-Income Student Support team.
