The deadline to donate meals has passed for Fall 2021. Come back next semester to donate!

Save-A-Swipe creates a pool of meals that become available to UMBC students who have been identified by trained staff as food insecure.

Students on a meal plan can now enroll to donate one meal a week (5 or 10 meals per semester) to a shared pool until September 24th. Those meals will be distributed to students in need through Counseling Services to be used in True Grit’s. Meals will begin to be deducted on Monday, September 27th.

If you are in need of meals, email to be assisted.

Due to the COVID-19 campus regulations Save-a-Swipe will be reserved for the students who have the permission to be on campus. The pandemic has undeniably increased the issues of food access and adequacy for a number of people and we are striving to serve the affected community members via all our available programs.
