Badger Fare Program

The Dean of Students Office works to connect students who are dealing with temporary and ongoing food insecurity with campus and community resources for long-term support, while providing them with funds that they can immediately use to purchase food on campus.

These funds will be given to a student in the amount of $75 via their Wiscard. All enrolled students who meet the criteria below are eligible to receive funds once each semester. Students with additional need may be eligible once a semester and will be considered on a case by case basis.


  • Student be enrolled in the current term in order to receive the funds or enrolled in the next academic period if between semesters
  • Some circumstance related to food insecurity or unexpected life event

Defining Food Insecurity

Food insecurity is both what we traditionally think of as not having enough to eat (having to skip meals) and not having access to a nutritional and varied diet.


If approved, Badger FARE will be added to student’s Wiscard and student will receive email follow up with information and resources will be provided
