Swipe Out Hunger is a national nonprofit committed to eliminating food insecurity for students on college campuses across the country. CU Denver has partnered with Swipe Out Hunger and Lynx Dining to offer free meal swipes to students needing food assistance. Any CU Denver student may self-nominate themselves to request campus meal swipes from our Meal Swipe Bank, even if they do not live in the residence halls.
Note: You must be enrolled as a current CU Denver student and cannot have an active meal plan to request Swipe Out Hunger meals. Each student can receive one swipe per semester.
