Swipe Out Hunger
Sodexo and Swipe Out Hunger are partnering to combat food insecurity. Food insecurity is not having reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable nutritious food. Any student who does not have a Standard Meal Plan is eligible for this program. This program for students is a pilot in 13 Sodexo universities in the U.S. (including Westmont) for Spring 2020 semester and there is no guarantee this will be active next year. If you have any questions about the program, you can email Westmontcollege.email@example.com or Office of Disability Services.
