MEAL DONATIONS

This year, the meals we collect will be compiled to provide meals for food insecure Villanova students in a student to student meal donation program called the Wildcat Meal Share.

*Your meal donation will be taken during lunch hours on Thursday, Nov. 18th. 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)*

Fast Day: Thursday, November 18, 2021

For every banner ID we collect, Villanova Dining Services will allocate the donated meal to a food insecure Villanova student in a student-to-student meal donation program called the Wildcat Meal Share. 
Your meal donation will be taken during the lunch period (10:30am - 4:10pm) on Thursday, Nov. 18th. 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)!
