GreaterGood is proud to partner with the Food Recovery Network, a dynamic, student-led organization which donates surplus dining hall food to those in need.
To celebrate the University of Maryland’s entrance into the Big 10, the Food Recovery Network’s important work was recently highlighted in this moving video clip. Their commitment to tackling both food waste and hunger is an inspiration to us!
The Food Recovery Network is the largest student movement against hunger in America, with involvement at over 100 colleges across the country.

Schools don’t just educate kids; they also feed them! Each year, the National School Lunch Program provides over 31 million low-income students with free or reduced-price lunch. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) improved the requirements for healthy lunch options, but with the budget per meal being increased by only six cents, there’s been a massive disconnect between public policy and the cost realities of healthy food.
You can help be a part of the solution by signing our petition advocating for an expansion of the USDA’s Farm to School Grant Program as a way to address budget shortfalls and promote eating local. Click here to help!
