The Food Recovery Network is an extensive network of college student groups across the nation who are passionate about fighting hunger and food waste in their communities.

Founded in 2011, the network  includes chapters at more than 110 colleges and universities in the US.

FRN also raises awareness about issues of food waste and hunger in America.

Our chapter at UNCG opened in 2015. Since then we have recovered over 4,000 pounds of food.
