Warrior meal share program

The Warrior Meal Share Program supports currently enrolled Wayne State students by providing meal swipes to reduce food insecurities students may face. Meal swipes are shared by Wayne State students with meal plans who donate their guest meal swipes. Office of Housing & Residential Life, Dining Services and The W Food Pantry and Thrift Shop have teamed up to create this program with the joint mission of enhancing student success.

Emergency meal card

If you are a currently enrolled student who would benefit from the program, please email Kenya Maxey at ae4082@wayne.edu.

A Wayne State staff member will reach out to you soon after to provide you with additional information and resources from across campus.

How do I use my meal swipes?

Your meal card will be loaded with an allotted amount of meal swipes you can use at Towers Café. Swip your card at the cashier counter the same as you would for a meal plan. If you would like to know your balance, you may ask the cashier or contact the OneCard office.

Please visit dining.wayne.edu for menus, hours of operation and more.

Donate meal swipes

If you are a currently enrolled student with a meal plan and are interested in sharing your guest meal swipes, please look out for Meal Share drives. These happen several times a year. 

Why should I share my guest swipes?

If you don't often treat a guest to the dining hall, there are other Warriors who could benefit from your guest meal swipes.

  • 30% of college students are food insecure*
  • 43% of food insecure students have a meal plan*

By sharing up to three of your guest meal swipes, you will contribute to helping your fellow students stay Warrior Strong.
