New Jersey City University

About the program

Throughout the semester, students can donate their extra guest swipes with any of the cashiers during open cafeteria hours at Vodra Dining Hall and GSUB Cafeteria. Students can also donate by going to the Community Center, where the Coordinator will swipe their card using an iPad. The Community Center Coordinator helps lead designated donation drives where students can donate meals through this same iPad.

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus? Please contact [email protected] or [email protected] to request swipes. Check out more information on the Gothic Night Food Pantry in our Campus Resources section below.
