WHAT IS MOVE OUT FOR HUNGER?
When college students move out of their residence halls for the summer, a lot of food can be left behind. They might forget about the stash of granola bars under their bed or the jar of unopened peanut butter stuffed in the back of the cabinet. Luckily, this event is held to prevent this type of food from going to waste! Food Recovery Network partners with Move for Hunger to collect unopened, perfectly good food from campus residence halls as students move out at the end of the semester. Our FRN chapters lead the charge all across the country to host Move Out For Hunger events on their campus and carry out the food collection. We have had incredible success with this event in the past couple years and we only expect its impact to grow. To learn more about Move Out For Hunger, please read this blog from our first year of the event!
