Addressing Food Insecurity

Food insecurity is used to describe the state of being without reliable access to sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. We have introduced programing to support of students who may experience food insecurity: Swipe It Forward .

Swipe It Forward

This program was developed to support students who may have difficulty finding access to nourishing and affordable food.  Students on the meal plan can donate one guest pass and one block per semester for use by a student who expresses need.  Any "gifted" meal blocks and guest pass will be removed from the donating student's account and added to a "donation account" where it will be available for approval requests throughout the academic year.  

To donate a meal, please go to this link to donate a meal.

To request a meal, please email your confidential request to the Dean of Students, Dr. Derek Zuckerman at  Please include your student ID # and name, you will receive a reply within 3 business days.
