The Telegram reports on Food Recovery Network chapters at the College of the Holy Cross, Becker College, and Nichols College. The Food Recovery Network (FRN) was founded in 2011 by students at the University of Maryland who recognized how much dining hall food was being wasted. Currently, FRN has more than 150 chapters at colleges and universities across the United States.

The Holy Cross chapter, which was started in December of 2014, collects food from their campus center and donates it to the Food for the Poor Program at St. John’s Church. Food from Becker is donated to a veteran’s shelter. Nichols students donate to Webster-Dudley Food Share.
