swipe & share 2021

Madison, Wis. (December 21, 2021) - The Student Veterans Association, with support from Dominican Life and the Military & Veterans Services Office at Edgewood College, loaded and delivered food donations from the Swipe & Share program, just in time for the holidays.

This is the eighth semester of the program, and students at Edgewood College donated more than $2,300 and nearly 1,500 pounds of shelf-stable foods to the Catholic Multicultural Center in Madison.

 The Swipe & Share donations are purchased with contributions from students who did not use the entirety of their meal plans during each semester.

 The support for the Catholic Multicultural Center is a true team effort: Edgewood College Athletics lent use of the team van to transport, Edgewood College Dominican Life provided logistical support, and Dining Services, led by Director Jon Riffle, assisted in ordering and organizing the donations of the food, which was delivered on December 20.
