About the program

The first few weeks of each semester, students can sign up to donate up to three guest swipes online and at iPads at Swipe Out Hunger drive tables. Swipes are then distributed to students facing food insecurity by Boynton Health Services and Nutritious U Food Pantry.

Program Roots

Swipe Out Hunger is a student organization focused towards combating food insecurity and reducing the stigma on hunger. Through a strong partnership with University Dining Services and Aramark, we collect donated guest meal swipes from students with a meal plan, and distribute them to students facing food insecurity through Boynton Health Services.
