Swipe Out Hunger

UTSA Campus Services and UTSA Dining (powered by Aramark Higher Education) are partnering with the Roadrunner Pantry for Swipe Out Hunger, an ongoing national campaign to end food insecurities among students. Students with meal plans can donate unused meals, allowing students in need to access fresh, warm meals from the Roadrunner Café.

The campaign runs Feb. 1-28. UTSA Dining plans to match all donations throughout the month of February.

Those who donate this month will be eligible for random prize drawings. Learn more.

How to Donate

UTSA meal plan holders have the opportunity to donate an unused “meal swipe,” which is equivalent to one meal at the Roadrunner Café.

Important Notes

  • Meal plan holders can donate one meal per semester (two per year).
  • One meal is equivalent to a trip to the Roadrunner Café.
  • Faculty, staff and students without meal plans who wish to support the fight against food insecurity are welcome to donate food and other supplies directly to the Roadrunner Pantry at any time. Monetary donations are also accepted through the Roadrunner Pantry website.

How to Request Meals

With the partnership of UTSA Dining, Campus Services and the Roadrunner Pantry, the UTSA Meal Share program allows students to request donated meal swipes throughout the year to combat food insecurity on campus. This program provides up to 15 meals each semester per student for use at the Roadrunner Café. This also include donations done through Swipe Out Hunger.

To request a meal, complete the online application through the Roadrunner Pantry. Allow up to 24 hours for a response.
