Notre Dame Campus Dining is pleased to announce their partnership with Food Rescue US: an organization dedicated to providing “food for all”. Through a network of food donors, food runners, and partner agencies, Food Rescue US facilitates the transfer of fresh food that would have otherwise been discarded to food insecure families throughout the US.
Campus Dining serves over 10,000 meals daily within two dining halls. While striving to produce only what is needed, there are inevitably items not consumed. This partnership will allow Campus Dining to utilize these prepared items within the greater South Bend area and not only reduce food waste, but support the University’s commitment to community engagement for the common good.
Food Rescue US is based in Norwalk, Connecticut. They are currently working in 9 cities across the United States. This is their first association with a college dining program.
