- Social Innovation Fellowship
The Food Recovery Network @ Brown (FRN@Brown) is a new student-run social venture that works on campus and in the Providence community (through a partnership with We Share Hope) to get ready-to-eat food to the people who need it most. We are a network of student groups and individuals at Brown University, volunteering to recover the surplus food from the dining halls and special events and donate it to hungry men, women, and children in the Providence area. We divert food before it ends up in the trash, and make sure it gets to the people who need it. The Starr Fellowship is a great opportunity for us to expand our operations on campus as well as to work with a local Food Recovery organization, We Share Hope, to improve the sustainability of food recovery in Providence. More Food for People, Less for Trash Cans!
