Terrier Meal Share

Terrier Meal Share is an initiative that gives students the opportunity to donate their unused guest meal swipes online to any undergraduate, graduate, or professional student in need at Boston University. Students experiencing food insecurity will be able to receive meals by contacting the Dean of Students’ office, University Service Center, or the Office of Financial Assistance.

Request meal assistance

If you are a Boston University student in need because of an immediate, short-term lack of access, or financial resources to access food, you can request assistance through the Dean of Students by completing a short form at the following link. Staff from the Dean of Students’ office, University Service Center or Office of Financial Assistance will contact students to discuss support, eligibility, and the process for obtaining meal assistance. If you have an immediate need, please call or stop by the office, otherwise, requests will be responded to within one business day.

This request is for short-term assistance requests in crisis situations. If you are in continuing need, please reach out to the Office of Financial Assistance, University Service Center or the Dean of Students office.

What is Food Insecurity?

Food insecurity is the lack of access, or financial resources to access, a sufficient amount of food.

Donate Meals

Students wishing to donate guest meals can do so on the Student Link under Food and Shelter and selecting Terrier Meal Share. Thank you for your kindness.

Auxiliary Service Guest Meal Matching Program

Recognizing that food insecurity is a global issue, Auxiliary Services has partnered with the Dean of Students office to support our BU students by offering a guest meal matching program. Auxiliary Services will match any student guest meal donation at a 1-1 ratio to further expand the Terrier Meal Share initiative at Boston University.
