Income Guidelines to be Pantry Eligible
In addition to our pantry services, we partner with Chartwells and Student Assistance Services to host a program called Swipe Out Hunger one week every semester! This program allows Aggies with excess meal swipes on their meal plans to donate them so they can be reallocated to students in need. To learn more about this event click here: Swipe Out Hunger
