Welcome to the Student Portal for Official Chapters 

Below, you’ll find a number of helpful tools and resources designed for FRN student leaders to solidify their official chapter status, track recoveries, and expand their team’s capacity.

The Student Portal is constantly being updated with new and previously existing resources. Have a suggestion for an addition to the Portal? Email: programs@foodrecoverynetwork.org or your FRN point of contact.

We're coordinating our 3rd FRNdzy fundraiser! Between February 15th and April 15th, chapters across the country will be fundraising to help us reach our goal of $5,000. As our network grows, we continually need to buy resources so that hungry Americans can access potentially wasted food. We’re working every day to bring food recovery to new communities. Without this money, new chapters can't buy pans, can't execute recoveries, can't feed hungry people.

This is our biggest chapter-focused fundraising initiative, and your chapter gets to keep half of the money it raises! You can use your #FRNdzy2017 funds however you’d like — to host an event with your partner agency, to travel to our national conference (the National Food Recovery Dialogue) to have a thank-you event or give your volunteers FRN swag. The other half of the money will be used to supply materials to new chapters. We can’t do our work without your support.

If you and your team are interested in fundraising, you should get together and submit your plan here: 2017 #FRNdzy Chapter Sign-Up. We’ll be accepting submissions until March 31st.


You can make a donation on our Catalogue for Philanthropy page here.
