About Food Recovery Network
Food Recovery Network at the University of Mississippi Medical Center works with on-campus food services and local restaurants to divert food from landfills to community members in need, while raising awareness on issues of food waste and hunger in America. Tasks include picking up and delivering food to local Non-profits.
Cafeteria Recoveries take place each week day between (Monday-Friday) 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Typically requires less than 25 minutes total. Volunteers pick up the food from the UMC cafeteria and deliver it to Stewpot or Matt's House.
Beagle Bagel Food Recovery occur each Tuesday and Thursday night. Volunteers can call Beagle Bagel at Highland village around 6pm to ask if they will have food to pick up. Food can then be recovered between 6pm-7pm and delivered to Matt's House that evening or Stewpot the next day.
