Swipe Out Hunger

UCLA Food Insecurity Organization

Who We Are

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.

Looking for information on meal vouchers, affordable food options, or anything else?

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.

See what we've gathered here and contact us with any additional questions.
