Two Birds One Stone is a club that delivers hot, edible food that is leftover from NYU dining halls to homeless shelters around NYC such as the NYC Rescue Mission and Bowery Mission. We aim to reduce the amount of food that is wasted each night at NYU dining halls and redistribute this food so that the hungry and homeless populations may access healthy, nutritious meals. We also strive to raise the awareness of NYU dining hall staff and management as to the amount of excess food that is prepared each night so that measures may be put in place to limit the amount of food that goes to waste.
Other goals include:
Facilitate community involvement and empower students to take action against food injustice, environmental degradation and poverty.
Educate the NYU community on food, poverty and environmental issues.
Foster the sense that NYU is truly “in and of the city” by building partnership and ties to New York City community based organizations and populations.
