Welcome to Food Rescue!

Portal Information

Description

Food Rescue is a student organization that partners with the Eddy Shelter in Middletown to reduce waste on campus and alleviate food insecurity in our community by reallocating the excess food, that would otherwise be thrown away, from our dining halls (Usdan, Pi Cafe and Summerfields) to the Eddy Shelter. 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. Volunteers also have the opportunity to participate in our community dinner at the shelter at least once a semester.
