Swipe Drive: Help UW-Madison Swipe Out Hunger

UW-Madison joins national Swipe Out Hunger initiative devoted to ending college student hunger

Event Details

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
9 a.m.

Join us the week of Oct. 4 - 11 for UW-Madison’s first Swipe Drive!  Through the Wisconsin Union, RecWell, and University Housing, students will be able to donate $1 when making a purchase with their WisCard across campus to support our Badgers. Funds will directly support UW-Madison's Badger FARE program. Donations will establish a food security fund, ensuring Badgers have access to affordable & nutritious food.

Today, 1 in 3 college students across the country will struggle with a worrying question on their mind: where will my next meal come from?

With inaccessible and inadequate federal support for this issue and a troubling stigma preventing some students from seeking assistance, food insecurity remains among the top concerns of college students and leaders in the US — and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Through a student-led initiative in partnership with the Dean of Students Office, UW-Madison is now the first Swipe Out Hunger partner in the entire state of Wisconsin. Please join us Oct. 4-11 and help other Badgers experiencing food insecurity on our campus.
