Sodexo has announced a pilot program to expand its partnership with Swipe Out Hunger, a national nonprofit committed to reducing food insecurity on college campuses. The program will be piloted on 13 campuses and would establish a “Meal Swipe Bank” at each college for students in need. Sodexo will provide two free meals for every full-time meal plan sold.
“Over the past year, we have been at the table with Sodexo working to develop a thoughtful solution to hunger on campus,” said Rachel Sumekh, Founder and CEO of Swipe Out Hunger. “This program is the first large-scale program of its kind within the food service industry and we know it will make a significant impact on students’ lives and their overall well-being. We’ve learned to never underestimate the power of a meal swipe.”
