Marco’s Meal Share

What is Marco’s Meal Share?

The Marco’s Meal Share initiative gives students the opportunity to share meal swipes online with other students at Marshall University.  Students experiencing food insecurity will be able to request and receive meals by requesting and meeting with the Office of Student Affairs.  This initiative is made possible by collaboration with the Student Government Association, Student Affairs, and Information Technology.

What is Food Insecurity?

Almost half of college students across the country are food insecure.  Food insecurity is the lack of access, or financial resources to access, a sufficient amount of quality, affordable, and nutritious food. Access to quality food is important for college students in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and be successful in and out of the classroom. Marshall University is committed to providing options and resources to help fight this battle.  Additional information regarding food insecurity is available on our Food Pantry website.
