Okay, Tumblr! This is important…
At the University of Oklahoma, we have meal exchanges and meal points. Points are a set number per semester, and at the end of the year, they vanish. If you have 100 points leftover (worth $100), that money disappears. At the end of the week, if you have an exchange leftover (worth $7), it also disappears.
Rather than students buying excess food just to keep from losing money, what if the OU consolidated all leftover meals and donated it to low-income families?
People at my school can be seen going to various stores and restaurants on Saturday nights, trying to spend the money so they don’t lose it. I’d much rather see this go towards those who don’t have a guaranteed warm meal to look forward to.
