As COVID-19 continues to spread, the communities affected most are those without proper access to food. In addition, many people are losing their sources of income which results in them not being able to purchase food for themselves and their families. Food Recovery Network is doing what they always do - identifying where perfectly good surplus food exists and ensuring it gets to local organizations, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and individual families where and when they can. Help supply these volunteers with the tools they need for pickup, delivery, and transport of the food while also making sure the food arrives safe and untouched. With the purchase of a kit you can assist this amazing organization and the students who are- against all odds - getting this food delivered where it's needed to people in need of meals. These items will also help the chapters be ready for next term, in the fall, dealing with the after effects of the coronavirus. In the long run, these resources will be vital to continue their mission, even when Covid19 has passed. Show your support for communities and these Food Recovery Network chapters, let them know that they aren't alone, that we will stand together during these hard times, now and in the future.
Food Recovery Network has chapters all over the United States that help those who are in need get the food that will sustain them. During uncertain times, no one should be worried about where their next meal is coming from. FRN also organizes food drives, their volunteers working hard to support those in need on a local level. Bringing a sense of relief to those they are supporting.
Food Recovery Network partners with local colleges, universities and restaurants to collect leftover food and then transport it to local pantries, soup kitchens and other essential food programs. This process helps to decrease food waste, while also providing meals to those in need. However, FRN volunteers need your help.
