UCLA Food Insecurity Organization
Our UCLA team is the founding branch of the national Swipe Out Hunger organization. Swipe Out Hunger is dedicated to eliminating food insecurity on college campuses across the country.
At UCLA, we not only work to make sure every student has adequate access to nutritious food through the Swipes Drive and meal voucher program, but we also engage in a wide variety of other philanthropic efforts aimed at decreasing food insecurity and food waste in the greater LA community.

Dinner is served, from ordering groceries to setting the table.
Leftovers from farmer's markets are shared with the LA community.

Take action on student food insecurity at one of our upcoming events this quarter.

We welcome UCLA students from all types of backgrounds to be part of Swipes.

The pandemic has been difficult for many of us. To help out a bit, we've been working hard with our partners to compile resource guides addressing food security and basic needs. We are also currently releasing a series of posts aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of food insecurity.
