The Mustang Meal Share program supports students who are experiencing food insecurity by creating an avenue for students to donate money from their dining plan. As part of the university’s Basic Needs Initiative, Mustang Meal Share allows any student with a dining plan to donate up to $65 dining dollars, enough for 10 meals, per academic quarter to help ensure that every student has access to nutritious meals each day so they can stay focused on their studies and success.
New for 2020-21, students with dining dollars can donate up to $195, enough for 30 meals, anytime throughout the year.
To donate a meal please follow this link, fill out the form, and submit.
At the end of the academic year, all unused Meal Share Program money will be rolled over to ensure that all student donations continue to help their fellow students.
In line with the statewide CSU program, Cal Poly’s Basic Needs Initiative was set in place to address student hunger on campus. The program provides an on-campus representative to help interested students enroll in CalFresh, offers access to a campus food pantry, and supports Mustang Meal Share.
