Student and Family Resources Meal Share Program

The CSU Meal Share Program helps support students in times of hardship by providing meals to meet immediate needs. Meal swipes from meal plans are donated by the campus community and given out on an as-needed basis. Donations and requests are accepted during fall and spring semesters while the Lakeside Dining Hall is open. 

Donate a Meal

If you have a meal plan, you can donate meal swipes to support students with immediate food needs. Meals can be donated from any student block plan, Faculty/Staff plan, or from the guest meal allowance from semester plans (Platinum, Gold, or Silver).

Request a Meal

If you are in immediate need of a meal and don’t have an active meal plan, you are welcome to submit a request. Upon completion of your request, someone from the Meal Share program will review your request and may authorize a certain number of meals to your LakerCard for use at the Lakeside Dining Hall. Approval and assignment is based upon need and availability of donated meals. Please note: Only currently-enrolled students are eligible for the Meal Share program.
