About the program

COMING SOON: The Swipe Out Hunger program at Mercyhurst University is temporarily suspended.

Throughout the semester, students with a meal plan can donate 5 meals at a time as well as dining dollars through the CBORD GET Student App. Meal passes are then distributed through the OneCard office.
