Food Recovery Network unites students at universities to fight food waste and hunger by recovering food and donating it to people in need.
Food Recovery Network brings students at universities together to fight food waste and hunger. This is done by recovering surplus, edible food, that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and surrounding communities. The food is then donated to people in need. Nationally one out of six adults are food insecure, meaning they do not know where their next meal will come from. Fresno County reported above the national average on hunger at 22% of families struggling with hunger. Geographically, we live in the hub of agriculture that grows enough food to feed the nation. There is absolutely no justifiable reason why anyone should go hungry. With the help of student volunteers and local partnerships, we can reduce food waste and help feed individuals and families in need.
