Students with meal plans at the University of Minnesota can now donate their unused meal swipes to help hungry classmates, thanks to a national movement and an ambitious student.
The program, called Swipe Out Hunger, will let students donate guest swipes from their meal plan every semester to food-insecure students. It is set to launch at the end of October.
As part of the program, a three-week donation drive will be held in dining halls each semester. In that time, students will be able to donate up to 10 meals.
