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.

Food Recovery Network Recovers 33,000 Pounds of Food IN One Day

“To recover more than 33,000 pounds of food in one afternoon is a testament to the people and partners that believe in the importance of our mission. The Winter Fancy Food Show offers a perfect example of how critical a food recovery program can be for the surrounding community, and we look forward to creating more opportunities like this in the future.”
— 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.
