About the program

At the start of the fall and spring semesters, CSUF hosts a month-long guest meal donation campaign. Tables are set up outside the Gastronome that invite students with meal plans to donate one of their guest meals to support another student on campus. Aramark matches each donated meal!

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus? Learn how you can apply for meal assistance here and check out our Campus Resources section below for information on Tuffy’s Basic Needs Center.

Program Roots

The initiative began through the collaboration of the Director of Housing and Residential Engagement, Aramark, The Dean of Students Office, and the Food and Housing Security Task Force. The program was designed to provide food assistance to students experiencing an unexpected emergency or crisis with the intention of helping them continue their education.
