MEAL DONATIONS

This semester, for every banner ID we collect, Villanova Dining Services will generously donate the cost of a meal ($6.50) to our partner organizations Catholic Relief Services, National Coalition for the Homeless, Project Home, and the Center for Environmental Transformation and others to provide food for those experiencing from hunger and homelessness.

Donate Here!
Fast Day: November 17, 2022

 All those who donate are encouraged and asked to give up their lunch that day as an act of solidarity with those who are affected by these issues. Your meal donation will be taken during the lunch period (10:30am - 4:10pm). You will not be able to swipe into a dining hall or use an MPE during that time. (Points and guest meals will still be active.)
In lieu of a lunch meal, there will be granola bars and apples at swipe desks in all 3 dining halls (Donahue, Dougherty, and St. Mary's)! Thank you for taking part in this act of solidarity with those experiencing food insecurity.
