About the program

During designated drive weeks in the Fall and Spring semesters, students can donate one meal at the tables in the dining halls. The Dean of Students office then distributes the swipes to students facing food insecurity on campus.

During their first drive in Spring 2019, students collected 3,000 swipes and reached 3,000 students!

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus? Please come to the Dean of Students Office during Walk-in Hours, Monday through Friday from 1:00pm-4:00pm or call 860-486-3426 to schedule an appointment with an Assistant Dean of Students. Check out our Campus Resources section below for additional information.
