BEYOND MEAL SWIPES

  • Authored successful +$20 million in legislation to support CA campuses with anti-hunger efforts

  • Grow SNAP outreach

  • Fight stigma associated with college student hunger through campaigns

OUR IMPACT

STUDENT HUNGER IS REAL.
WE CAN HELP END IT.

In the 2018 – 2019 school year, we grew our campus partners by 82%
and expanded to eight new states.

  • 48% of those we serve are 1st generation students.

  • 52% of students who we serve agree swipes improved their grades.

  • After receiving meal swipes 1/2 of students no longer worry food
    will run out.

By receiving free dining hall passes, I have been
able to nourish my body as needed instead of
skipping meals or resorting to a ramen diet.
