Our Mission

Share Meals is dedicated to ensuring all college students are food secure. We want to empower them to strengthen their own communities through sharing food and we accomplish this through technology, activism, and advocacy.

Understanding the Need

The Share Meals App

Share Meals is a digital platform where students can share extra meal swipes and post extra food from club events with students who are food insecure. It works in real time, based on your location. You can find extra food within a 5 minute walking distance with one quick glance.

Ms. Suarez ate several times with a couple receiving her swipes, and she has ordered takeout so often for Mr. El-Sayigh that she has nicknamed him Curly Fries. "He messages me whenever," she said. She places the order; he picks it up. read more
