FRN is excited to share the Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Report with you. We're so proud of the work that is showcased in this report, from the successes of our recoveries across the country to our brand-new Student and Alumni Advisory Board to the strides we're making with our Food Recovery Verified program.
FRN continues to scale at a rapid pace, and the milestones that you will read about in this annual report are evidence of our movement’s ability to make positive, lasting change. We continue to expand into more states: last year, we added eight new states to our network, and this year, we gained another, bringing our movement into 44 states and the District of Columbia. In 2017, we achieved one of our largest milestones: we recovered and donated our second millionth pound of food to those in need.
We invite you to get to know FRN better by reading our stories and connecting with us. We hope you’re inspired by the thousands of college students in our network who every day provide for those in need with dignity and respect, and show us how we can be better stewards of our environment.
