Join the largest student movement against hunger in changing the norm from food waste to food recovery.


Food Recovery Network unites students on college campuses to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and communities and donating it to people in need.


Giving Tuesday - November 28, 2017


Support student leaders who are fighting waste and feeding people across the country

You’ve probably heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of one of the biggest fundraising days of the year, Giving Tuesday? In recent years, Giving Tuesday has become a national movement aimed at giving back to nonprofits that do incredible work all over the country. At Food Recovery Network, we’re hoping this year’s Giving Tuesday will be the best one yet — and we need your help to do it.

We’ll be spreading the FRN mission, to build excitement for Giving Tuesday, and would love your help — the more people we reach, the more people can give, and the more we can support you! Share what FRN means to you with your family and friends; tell YOUR story.
