The Bon Appétit Fellows are gearing up for the start of the school year, and thanks to our partnership with the Food Recovery Network we have some exciting new programs to look forward to. The Food Recovery Network (FRN) is a young organization dedicated to fighting waste on college and university campuses by recovering leftover food that would otherwise go to waste and getting it to people in need. They harness the passion and activism of students in partnership with dining facilities, like ours at Whittier College in Southern California, to start FRN chapters around the country. These chapters work towards reducing the barriers to food donation by facilitating the packaging and distribution of leftover food from cafés.
We are pleased to support the growth of the Food Recovery Network and hope to see more schools launch food recovery programs this year. Stay tuned for the release of the new chefs and managers’ guide to food recovery, cowritten by us and FRN!
