Food Recovery Network is a national nonprofit that unites students at colleges and universities to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campus dining halls and donating it to those in need. Our goal is to change the norm from food waste to food recovery in the United States.

Whole Foods market 5% Community Give Back Day

On Thursday, April 18, all twenty-nine Florida locations of Whole Foods Market donated 5% of their net sales to Food Recovery Network. Whole Foods Market and Food Recovery Network were able to raise $158,832. Thank you to everyone who came out and shopped that day and thank you to Whole Foods Market for partnering with us for this special event.



Eclipsing three million meals donated is a momentous occasion for everyone within our network. Every single volunteer hour and pound of food recovered contributed to our ability to reach this milestone. The dedicated people in this movement are going to be the ones who sustain us as we reach for our four millionth meal, while at the same time working to reduce food waste from happening in the first place.
— Regina Anderson, Executive Director of Food Recovery Network

Across the country, our chapters are doing amazing work. As each chapter has a unique relationship with their dining provider and partner agency, all our chapters have their own narratives to reflect on their experiences with FRN.
