Emergency Meal Card

Do you not have enough food to eat? Have you run out of food and do not have enough money to buy more?

The Emergency Meal Card program is a community meal sharing program that provides students experiencing a food security crisis with free meals on campus at City Eats Dining Hall. Meals are donated by Sodexo through a partnership with Swipe Out Hunger as well as by students, faculty, staff and community members.
