OUR WORK

Swipe Out Hunger is a national nonprofit committed to ending college student hunger. We work with colleges and universities to design and implement a range of anti-hunger programs across our 750+ campus network, including:

On-Campus Solutions

From funding opportunities for campus pantries to Swipe Drive meal donation programs, we help campuses get nourishing meals to students through our menu of innovative and sustainable programs.

Policy & Advocacy

We work with student advocates on-the-ground to advance state-based legislation like the Hunger Free Campus Bill and other federal legislation to end student hunger.

Community Building

We connect our community members with one another to learn, evolve, and collaborate through our digital community platform, in-person convenings, and peer-to-peer learning opportunities.

“The issue is now more legitimized by partnering with Swipe Out Hunger. And we’re getting a lot more steam behind the initiative of addressing student hunger.”

Linn-Benton Community College

THE ISSUE

At first glance, a college campus might look like a place of equal opportunity– communal dorms, shared dining halls, similar course loads. However, arriving on campus doesn’t mean students’ basic needs are being met. One in three students faces food insecurity nationally, affecting their ability to focus in class, stay in school, and feel part of the campus community. Check out more evidence and research here.
