Donate Extra Meal Points To Students In Need Starting November 13

Penn State is once again partnering with Swipe Out Hunger this fall to benefit the university’s Student Emergency Fund, which provides aid to students in need.

The fundraiser will run from November 13 to 21, syncing up with national Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. In that span, students across all Penn State campuses will have the chance to donate $5, $10 or $15 of their meal points to Penn State’s Student Emergency Fund.

The Swipe Out Hunger partnership formed from Penn State’s Task Force on Food and Housing Insecurity, which came to fruition in February 2020. Its goal is “to evaluate challenges and find innovative solutions to the issues of student food and housing insecurity as part of Penn State’s commitment to access and affordability.”

Last spring, Penn State ran a similar campaign that raised more than $29,000 for students in need.
