National Food Recovery Dialogue is Food Recovery Network’s national conference. This is our third national conference and the first in Philadelphia!

Stay tuned for updates as we finalize our All-Star list of speakers. We’re also building out a workshop proposal form and an academic showcase. The application for the workshop proposal and the nomination process for the academic showcase will open shortly after registration.


Join us for the weekend-long conference to deepen your knowledge of the food recovery landscape and connect with professionals, all while building community with FRNds from across the country. In the past, hundreds of people attended NFRD for inspiring conversations about the future of food waste and hunger in this country. This event is an excellent opportunity to flex your leadership skills and satisfy your travel bug.

We want to make this event as accessible as possible, so we’re recruiting sponsorship for student travel and will offer free registration for volunteer. Please reach out if you need financial support.

Can’t Wait to see you in Philadelphia!
