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.


The 2019 Winter Fancy food show recovery was a massive success!

— Kyle Ruhe, founder of FRN at Jacksonville University
