Swipe Out Hunger

Update: March 30, 2021

Due to challenges related to COVID-19, the Swipe Out Hunger programhas been modified.  For alternative resources, please visit COVID-19 Student Assistance.

Western is committed to assist students facing food insecurity on campus.

Swipe Out Hunger (SOH) allows students to donate their meal “swipes” to help students facing food insecurity.).  Any meal “swipe” donated will directly benefit the purchase of food provided at this quarter’s weekly Pop-up Pantry taking place on Fridays (see below). Any meal plan holder can donate unused swipes to help Western students secure food on campus.

Swipe Out Hunger began spring 2019. In the program's first quarter, SOH received donations from over 200 students, giving over 1,000 meals to students in need.
