Swipe Out Hunger is a national nonprofit committed to eliminating food insecurity for students on college campuses across the country. CU Denver has partnered with Swipe Out Hunger and Lynx Dining to offer free meal swipes to students needing food assistance. Any CU Denver student may self-nominate themselves to request campus meal swipes from our Meal Swipe Bank, even if they do not live in the residence halls.
1. Submit the online meal request form
2. Our staff will provide you with information about how and when you can access your meal swipes. We can also help connect you with additional resources for food and other basic needs.
3. Your meal swipes will be loaded onto your student ID card. Use them at either of our dining halls just like any other student!
Note: You must be enrolled as a current CU Denver student and cannot have an active meal plan to request Swipe Out Hunger meals. Each student can receive one swipe per semester.
