Welcome back, Retrievers!
Another semester means another opportunity for you to support your classmates who are struggling to eat while they're on campus.
The Save a Swipe Program provides free meals to True Grits for students who have been identified as food insecure by trained staff. Are you struggling to eat while you're on campus? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you qualify.
Did you have extra meals left on your meal plan last semester? Consider signing up to donate 5 or 10 meals from your meal plan to Save a Swipe to help a classmate in need. Last semester 280 meals were donated which were able to feed 23 food insecure students. Help us reach and surpass those numbers this semester! Consider doing your part in helping Retriever Essentials bridge the gap between hunger on campus and academic success by signing up to donate online from now until 2/15/19.
Donated meals will be distributed to students in need through Counseling Services to be used in True Grit’s. 225 Block meal plans will have 5 or 10 meals deducted when you sign up. Recurring meals per week (Flexible 10, 14, Terrific 12, Savvy 16) will have one meal deducted each week starting February 25th-May 6th. Ultimate Meal Plan holders will be donating their Friday lunch meal, students on the Ultimate will not be able to use a meal from 11:00 am - 4:00pm on Friday. Ultimate plan holders can still use their flex, Retriever Dollars or food funds. By donating these meals you agree to this form, these meals are non-revocable once submitted. You may sign up during the beginning of the semester until the drop/add date (February 15th, Spring 2019).
