About the program

Each semester, 7,000 meals are made available by Aramark Dining to be distributed to commuter students who are pell eligible. The Dean of Students identifies and contacts these students via email to notify them that they qualify for this resource. 10 Meals are then uploaded to the student ID cards of each student.

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus? Contact the Dean of Students office to learn more about available resources.

Program Roots

In response to the advocacy efforts of student leaders from the NAN Spelhouse Collegiate Chapter, university leadership brokered a deal with food service provider Aramark so that unclaimed meal plans could go to students who faced food insecurity.
