About the program

Each semester, students with meal plans can donate up to 3 guest meal swipes online or in person at Swipe Out Hunger drive tables in the dining halls. The donated meal swipes are distributed to students who struggle to get enough to eat.


Do you struggle to get enough to eat? If you don’t always have enough money for food, you can email us at swipes@umn.edu to learn how you can get access to 5 free meals.
