Helping Our Neighbors

Dartmouth Feeding Neighbors

Dartmouth Feeding Neighbors is a student-led program that supports the Upper Valley Haven. Food items left over at the end of a meal are packaged and set aside for a later pickup. The items are then delivered to the Upper Valley Haven, where they are used in the food pantry and in the Haven’s Café. Dartmouth Dining and many other local restaurants contribute towards this initiative.

Swipe for Hunger

Dartmouth Dining hosts a “Swipe for Hunger” event to support the Growing Change student group in their efforts to support the local community. During this event, students may donate a meal swipe or dining dollars. Proceeds from the event are set aside in an account for Willing Hands to purchase food items from Upper Valley Produce. Willing Hands is a local organization that distributes food and grocery items to food pantries throughout the Upper Valley.
