Virtual Give-A-Meal April 20th-24th

The Dean of Students Office and Dining Services would like you to participate in a virtual Husky Swipes event. The UConn Swipes Program aims to provide students who are food insecure, and/or who are experiencing an emergency situation, access to healthy and well-balanced meals in our campus dining halls.

As in the past, while students were on campus, Dining would work collaboratively with the Dean of Students Office and other Departments within Student Affairs to encourage students to donate one swipe from their meal plan so that funds would be available for those that are facing food insecurity.  We now encourage you to take this opportunity virtually so we can continue with this important cause.

Students with a traditional dining plan interested in helping another student fight hunger insecurity can do so at the virtual Give A Meal event:

  • WHEN: Monday, April 20, 2020 through Friday, April 24, 2020.
  • WHAT YOU DO: Log into your account at the One Card website.
  • Select Donations on the left-hand side
  • All proceeds will go to the UConn Swipes initiative.
  • Since its inception, the UConn Swipes initiative has donated $9,815!

If you need additional information regarding this initiative and how to apply you may find it on the Dean’s website at

Thank you in advance for your donation which will help a fellow Husky in the future.
