About the program

At the end of the quarter, students can donate dining dollars by swiping their Wildcard at dining hall drives and on campus C-stores. Swipes are then redistributed to students experiencing food insecurity and members of the greater Evanston community.

Are you a student experiencing food insecurity on campus? Check out our Campus Resources section for information on the Purple Pantry.
