A brief description of the food donation program:

On April 5, 2013, student member and volunteers for the GW chapter Food Recovery Network (FRN) collected their first prepared food donation from a Sodexo-managed kitchen in our J-Street food complex. Since that time, the FRN has collected and donated foods from additonal events outside of GW's Sodexo dining venues.

This was the first of many weekly recoveries to occur here at GW. Although the GW Food Recovery Network is student run and still in development, the Office of Sustainability fully endorses the effort and sees its connection to the Campus-wide Ecosystem Enhancement Strategy goals for food waste reduction.
