Swipe Out Hunger, the leading nonprofit addressing student hunger, has joined forces with LG Electronics USA to help provide healthy meals to more than 500,000 college students struggling with food insecurity. As part of the initiative, LG is donating 120 refrigerator-freezers stocked with healthy, nutritious food to 60 campuses in Swipe Out Hunger's network.
LG will also provide grants for an additional 40 colleges and universities to upgrade their current campus refrigerators, the company announced in a recent press release.
"Working with Swipe Out Hunger aligns with our goal of a Better Life for All. Beyond providing refrigerators to campus food pantries for much-needed fresh food storage, LG is proud to support Swipe Out Hunger's mission to end college student hunger," said LG Electronics USA Senior Vice President John I. Taylor.
Over the past year, Swipe Out Hunger has granted more than $200,000 to college campuses. With this additional support from LG, together they will be able to reach even more students across the country.
