Social ButterflyImpactful Reach

Food Recovery Network is a national nonprofit that empowers students and professionals to fight waste and feed people through food recovery.

FRN is a grassroots movement, empowering college students to implement food recovery programs within higher education. Student leader Alex Wilson at the University of Minnesota said, “I had no idea that food waste was a problem before joining FRN. I am so thankful to have learned about this problem relating to both the hunger felt by millions of people and the sustainability of the earth.”

3.9 million pounds of surplus food recovered by student leaders since 2011.
