On October 30, 2011, K-State held its first ever meal packaging event through Numana, Inc. called SWIPE Out Hunger. In a sort-of competition with other college campuses across Kansas to package the most meals during the month of October, K-State and the community of Manhattan packaged 70,000 rice, bean, and nutrient-enriched meals while other colleges typically produced 20,000. Together, we are all working to make SWIPE a lasting tradition here at Kansas State University.
This year, our event will be held October 28th, and it is our goal to ship off 100,000 meals to a place in the world with the most immediate need. For this event to be a success like last year, we need to fundraise $23,000. To do this, we need the help of businesses and organizations throughout K-State and the Manhattan community, including you!
On this Eventbrite website, you'll be able to donate or register to volunteer on October 28th. We'll also keep you updated on our events leading up to SWIPE.
