Swipes For Us


With the rising number of students experiencing food insecurity, the Swipes For Us at UCSB program and Residential Dining Services teamed up to allow residents with a meal plan to donate meals to their peers who find themselves in need of a hot meal. Residents have donated over 6,000 meals tickets distributed through the Associated Students Food Bank.

How It Works

If you are interested in donating your meal swipes, please click here. You can donate up to three meals a week, Monday through Friday. By donating a meal swipe, students are helping feed a neighboring student who would otherwise go hungry.


If you would like to get involved in Swipes For Us at UCSB, either as a volunteer or in a leadership position, email the team directly at ucsbswipespresident@gmail.com.
