Swipes Drive


Thanks to Swipe Out Hunger, students no longer have to watch the excess meal swipes they paid for go to waste; they can donate them instead. P and R meal plans both qualify!

Swipe donation is quick and easy. Throughout Week 10 of every quarter, Swipe Out Hunger team members go to various UCLA dining locations and encourage students with extra meal swipes to donate them. Students can check their meal plan balance on the UCLA Housing app and can donate all swipes that would be leftover after their finals via a Google Form.

Usually, Swipe Out Hunger collects over 15,000 swipes a quarter! We then convert those extra swipes into meal vouchers for students without a meal plan and reliable access to food can request from the Economic Crisis Response Team (ECRT). The meal vouchers can be redeemed at UCLA dining facilities.
