Students make a difference with food recovery club

By Cliff McBride, University Communications and Marketing

Several days a week, students with the USF St. Petersburg food recovery club collect and transport unserved food from the campus’ dining facility to give to those in need. 

The club is devoted to reducing food waste. Working with Hope Kitchen this semester, USF students have provided nearly 800 pounds of food to the nonprofit, from chicken and pasta to mashed potatoes and soup.

Hope Kitchen is an organization that seeks to reduce hunger in the community by serving warm, nutritious meals to children and families facing food insecurity. The food recovery club is not only supporting that mission, but also helping tutor kids at the nonprofit’s computer lab.

From fighting waste to feeding people, learn more about the food recovery club here.
