About the program

Throughout the year, students can donate up to 15 swipes per semester by signing up at the Dining ID Office. The Counseling Center, Health Services, and Cornucopia Food Pantry refer students facing food insecurity to this resource and arrange for funds to be loaded onto their accounts. Dining plans operate via finger scanning technology, so with the scan of a finger students can enter the cafeteria like anyone else.

Are you experiencing food insecurity on campus? Please email your confidential request to and you will receive a reply within 24 hours with details about accessing meal swipes. You can also check out our Campus Resources section below for information on the Cornucopia Food Pantry.
