Food Recovery Network (FRN), SUNY Purchase Chapter

The Food Recovery Network (FRN) is the largest student movement fighting food waste and hunger in the United States. America wastes approximately 40 percent of the food it produces, despite confronting a growing problem of food insecurity across the country. One in every six Americans do not know when their next meal is coming. With the urgency of hunger worldwide, and the spread of food insecurity across U.S. colleges campuses, we have a responsibility to respond. The Purchase College FRN Chapter aims to provide resources to food-insecure students by participating in food recovery, donating food to those in need, and enhancing public awareness through education and advocacy.
