Food Recovery Network (FRN) is the largest student movement against food waste and hunger in the United States. We empower students at more than 230 colleges and universities across the country to recover surplus food from their dining services and other food businesses and donate it to hunger-fighting organizations in their communities. Since our founding in 2011, we have recovered more than 2.8 million pounds, or 2.4 million meals, to populations facing hunger in 44 states and the District of Columbia.
Our interactive Chapter Map is a testament to our wide geographical reach. Click on a green dot to find the following information: school name, chapter name, city, and state. Be sure to zoom out (CTRL + scroll) to get the full scope — including our chapter at the University of Hawaii – Manoa! Whether you’d like to plan events, brainstorm, or connect with our movement in any way, we hope that this map will allow the Further With Food community to interact with ours. Our students are bright, motivated, and innovative leaders — please feel free to reach out to them for local partnerships. Their contact information can be found by clicking on a state, choosing a school, and viewing their independent chapter profile.
On average, we receive one to two New Chapter Applications per week, and we approved 24 new chapters during the 2017-18 Program Year. The Chapter Map only lists Official FRN Chapters. With that in mind, please continue to check back on the map to see if a school in your area has recently started an FRN chapter!
