Food Recovery Network

Food Recovery Network (FRN) unites college and university students across the country to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and communities and donating it to people in need. At its core, FRN empowers student leaders to break down barriers and create stronger communities. In just five years, FRN has grown to be the largest student movement against hunger in the country, with nearly 200 chapters in 43 states that have donated more than 1.3 million pounds of food. Founded in 2011, FRN is a 501(c)3-certified national nonprofit headquartered in College Park, Maryland. For more information, please visit
