What is Swipe Out Hunger?

  • Swipe Out Hunger is a network of independently run chapters that host drives on college campuses to collect students' unused meal points and feed their peers and the local community.

What is Expected of a Chapter Leader?

  • To launch a chapter you will need to conduct research, build a supportive network of students and staff on campus, craft a proposal outlining the logistics to implement the program, and present it to dining services (as many times as needed) until it is approved.
  • After it is approved you will organize drives to collect meal points and engage the campus community in fulfilling our mission of alleviating hunger.
  • You will build capacity to sustain the initiative after you graduate. 

What are the Perks of Being a Chapter?

  • You will join a movement that Universities throughout the country are engaged in and that the Obama White House called “Champions of Change.”
  • You will gain real-world leadership experience and professional skills.
  • You will be invited to student conferences and regional gatherings where you can network.
