Badger Fare Program

The Dean of Students Office in collaboration with the Division of Continuing Studies 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 once in an academic year in the amount of $75 via their Wiscard.
