Fighting Waste. Feeding People. At CSUN.

Let's be real, Food Waste sucks. Just today, thousands of pounds of good food will be tossed into the trash. As well, a lot of people, just in our community are hungry. Wouldn't be awesome to take that food and give it to the hungry people? Well, that's what we do!

Our Mission:

We empower individuals, communities and food businesses to change the way they view and handle food surplus. Our goal is to make sweeping systems change across the food industry. Food recovery can and will replace food waste as the food industry norm, in large part because it is in the best interest of food businesses to participate. Successfully generating this shift will mean significantly reducing hunger and greenhouse gas emissions at the same time.


Ongoing weekly recoveries. Each recovery is about an hour of your time!

  • Wednesdays: Recoveries start at 8:30 am. 

  • Fridays: Recovery starts at 3:30 pm and 4:00 pm.

BUT, there are other volunteer opportunities!
