UNCG Food Recovery Network

The UNCG FRN chapter was founded during the Spring 2015 semester and has recovered 756 pounds of food from UNCG Dining Services since then.

In collaboration with student and non-student organizations on campus, the group aims to support and promote already existing organizations that are doing similar work in the community. They also hope to create an inclusive community at UNCG that focuses on food insecurity and nutrition, food waste and sustainability, and fighting hunger.

This semester, the food will be recovered every Monday and Thursday between 3:30 to 6 p.m. and then donated to The Salvation Army and Greensboro Urban Ministry as well as the Boys and Girls Club. For more info on the FRN at UNCG, like their Facebook Page or send an email to the chapter president.
