National Swipe Out Hunger Program
Swipe Out Hunger is a nationwide program that partners with colleges to help put an end to student hunger and assist those who struggle with food insecurity. Leadership & Community Engagement has partnered with Chartwells Dining Services, Auxiliary Services, Student Assistance and Support Services, and the Sustainability Office to bring this program to UNC Charlotte.
Donate Meal Swipes
Students can donate up to two swipes from their meal plan per semester. Swipes can be donated by:
- Visiting the 49er ID Card Office in Popp Martin Student Union, which has a swipe machine to collect meal donations.
- Outside Crown Commons (Prospector during Crown renovations) and SoVi Dining Hall during National National Volunteer Week:
- April 17 - 21, 2023
- March 29th, 2023
