About the program

Throughout the school year, students can donate meal swipes at a 1:1 rate directly at the cash register in Continuous Dining where they swipe their card to get in. Only students who have meal plans are able to donate, as the program relies on guest swipe donations. Meal passes are distributed on a case by case basis for those who are in need or use the NJIT Food Pantry. For information, students using the food pantry are able to inquire about receiving donated guest passes by signage within the pantry.
