Welcome to Food Rescue!

Portal Information

Description

Food Rescue is a student organization that partners with the Eddy Shelter in Middletown to reduce food waste on campus and alleviate food insecurity in our community. By reallocating the excess food, that would otherwise be thrown away, from our dining establishments (Usdan, Pi Cafe and Summerfields) to the Eddy Shelter, students establish a valuable community connection and residents of the shelter receive daily meals. Student volunteers sign up for half hour, weekly shifts where they pick up the excess food from our dining options and drive them to the Eddy Shelter, just 5 minutes from campus. We aim to foster a community around fighting hunger and homelessness in our own city.
