GivingTuesday is this month! We’re having a month-long fundraiser leading up to the global day of giving, November 29
You may remember that for the last 2 years we’ve done a #givingtuesday #frndzy campaign (in which chapters fundraised money for themselves). This year, we’ve decided to focus on strengthening FRN National's resources. Please help us spread the word and gather donations!
More details can be found here on our blog
National Goal of the Month: Expressing Gratitude
- Example language
Dear [INSERT DINING MANAGER NAME] & Team,
This term we have been able to rescue [# OF POUNDS] of good food and donate it to hunger fighting partners in our community! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we wanted to express our utmost gratitude to the dining hall staff and faculty for your cooperation in this endeavor. The beauty of Food Recovery is that it gives us an opportunity to work with partners at the dining hall and in our community to address food waste and food insecurity. These partnerships have not only allowed us to successfully recover food, but have also taught us about the inner workings of the dining hall and hunger in our community. Thank you for being open to this program and for aiding in its success!
Dear [INSERT PARTNER AGENCY NAME],

In the spirit of thanksgiving we want to extend our deepest gratitude for all of the amazing work you have done this term. With your help, we have already rescued [# OF POUNDS] of surplus food.
