According to the Census, 48 million people in the U.S. are food insecure. That's one in seven Americans who don't know where their next meal is coming from. Meanwhile, the EPA estimates that America wastes 68 billion pounds of food each year; enough to fill the up Rose Bowl every day.

The University of Maryland, College Park used to send all of its leftovers from student dining halls and from stadiums after games to landfills and composting facilities. Everyone, from the director to the dishwashers, hated to see good food go to waste, but there was no way to get it to those in need without taking on new labor and transportation costs.

So, a group of students took up the initiative. Since 2011, Food Recovery Network, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has started chapters at over 90 colleges and universities and donated more than 420,000 pounds of food. These students have volunteered time and transportation costs to deliver more than 335,000 meals to community hunger-fighting agencies since the program started. The only operating cost left? Trays.

Your compassionate donation can help! Each tray for safe, clean, and effective food transportation costs $1.50, and holds 15 meals. That means just $10 provides a nutritious meal for 100 Americans in need.


The Food Recovery Network unites students at colleges and universities to fight hunger and food waste by recovering surplus perishable food from campuses and communities and donating it to people in need.
