Meal Swipe Donation Drive Runs Through Dec. 20
Students will be able to donate unused meal swipes, dining dollars, and any monetary donation at dining halls through Dec. 20. These meals will be distributed to food-insecure individuals throughout next semester, combating food insecurity on campus.
Swipes can be donated one at a time in any dining hall when a student is swiping in for a meal. Dining dollars can be donated at registers as well, and cash and checks, made out to Chartwells, will be accepted as donations.
At least one in four University of Arkansas students have reported feeling the affects of food insecurity, which can affect physical and mental health, academic performance, and overall well-being. Donating meal swipes is a particularly efficient way to combat food insecurity because it provides a wide range of nutritious options to food-insecure individuals. The goal of the drive is to collect at least 3,000 meals throughout the three-week donation period.
The Meal Swipe Donation Drive is a partnership between the Associated Student Government, Volunteer Action Center, and Chartwells.
