COLUMBIA, Mo. - The University of Missouri's Columbia campus has launched a pilot program to help students who are food insecure.
The Meal Transfer Program allows students to transfer unused meals they've purchased to use at the dining halls to students in need. The students who need the assistance will be able to redeem those meals anonymously. The pilot program will allow students to donate up to 10 meals at a time.
Students can donate by going to the Tiger Pantry website, and simply fill out a form with their name, account number and how many meals they want to donate. To receive the donated meals, students will fill out a simple form, which will be processed by Campus Dining Services. Students in need can also visit Tiger Pantry for dry goods monthly and produce weekly.
