About the program

Throughout the year, students can fill out an online form to sign up to donate up to five meals, which are then distributed by the Coordinator in the Office of the Dean of Students to students facing food insecurity. These students can receive up to ten meals loaded directly onto their ID card.

Are you a student experiencing food insecurity on campus? Students can fill out an online application here to request meals and check out our Campus Resources section below for information on the Dean of Students’ available resources.
