Job Description

Thanks to the efforts of our network of 4,000+ student volunteers, FRN is making a powerful impact on food insecurity across the U.S. Last year, our network recovered and donated over 890,000 pounds of food, the equivalent of more than 742,000 meals for food-insecure individuals and families. In addition to addressing hunger, FRN's food donations provide critical costs savings to the over 340 hunger-fighting nonprofits with which we partner. In our most recent partner agency survey, organizations reported that FRN's food donations saved them an average of $7,000 per year, allowing them to reallocate funding to other essential services. Further, our average donation last year was equivalent to an $8,000 market value in food product.
