Swipe Out Hunger

No UC Davis student should ever have to miss a meal. Support long-term solutions to end hunger in our community!
November 15-30, 2017

Swipe Out Hunger provides an opportunity for the UC Davis community to contribute to a fund used by campus and local community charities to purchase food and other essentials to support students and community members most in need.

How To Donate

Help us reach our $10,000 goal by donating in $1 increments using cash, Aggie Cash or credit card. Donations will be accepted at all Student Housing and Dining Services operated locations.

Funds directly support the following programs:

  • Aggie Meal Share
    • The Aggie Meal Share is a Financial Aid program that provides meals to students who qualify for assistance
  • The ASUCD Pantry
    • The ASUCD Pantry provides food and other supplies, such as toiletries, to UC Davis students most in need
  • Yolo Food Bank
    • The Yolo Food Bank provides food to support the community members in Yolo County

When To Donate

There are two Swipe Out Hunger donation drives each year:

  • In late November, students can donate swipes at select locations in the residence halls and dining commons
  • In mid-June, at move-out, students can donate unused meal swipes

Even though there are only two donation drives, the fund provides money to the programs throughout the year.

Check back regularly for Swipe Out Hunger updates including information about future donation drives.
