Since FRN’s start in 2011:
3,852,778 pounds total of food recovered
3,210,648 meals total donated
More than 350 community partners across the U.S. within our network
In 2019 alone:
881,063 pounds recovered
734,219 meals donated
4,565 pounds average recovered by chapter
17 new chapters nationwide
$2,120,251 generated by the value of student volunteers’ time
This expansion would not have been possible without our established chapters, partners, and donors. One of the newest partnerships that truly accelerated our impact is with Whole Foods Market in Florida, Southern California, and Arizona, where proceeds from 5% Give Back Day led to our largest revenue year to date.
Food Recovery Network is poised to continue this positive momentum in the coming years with the growth of this student-led movement. Our national Board of Directors remains dedicated to securing more resources for FRN that will provide the bandwidth needed to accept the challenges of our next ambitious goal – to exponentially grow the number of people we gather around our food recovery table.
