Swipe Out Hunger Emergency Meal Program
CSUSB is partnering with Swipe Out Hunger and Sodexo, to bring this incredible meal donation program to campus. Students experiencing food insecurity and/or a student emergency, can now get access to healthy and well-balanced meals at the Coyote Commons. Students who qualify are awarded a minimum of 5 meals, but can be awarded more meals based on showing greater individual need. A student who believes they are in need of these emergency meals should submit a request form and may be required to meet with the Basic Needs Coordinator or CARE Case Management Specialist to discuss individual needs and review the program.
Please be detailed in your application for us to accurately assess and serve your needs.
