Swipe Out Hunger SUNY Binghamton started this petition to Sodexo dining services

Student hunger is real, we can help end it.  

This year, 1 in 3 students will go hungry. 

A Swipe Out Hunger program at Binghamton University would provide students with the opportunity to donate their remaining meal plan money to alleviate hunger.

In a 2016 survey of 3,800 students at 34 colleges across 12 states- the broadest sample to date- the authors found that 48% experienced food insecurity. Students with food and housing insecurities are

  • 53% more likely to miss a class
  • 55% more likely to not buy a required textbook
  • 81% more likely to not perform as well academically as they otherwise would have.

By introducing a Swipe Out Hunger program at Binghamton University, we would directly alleviate student hunger and raise the awareness of issues of food insecurity among our fellow students.

Please sign this petition if you want to help alleviate student hunger, reduce the stigma around student hunger, or simply want a way to donate your extra meal plan money.
