Denison University works with Food Recovery Network to donate leftover food

In November 2013, the university became the first Ohio school to join the program. Now, it is donating more food and involving students.

GRANVILLE, Ohio—In November 2013, Denison University became the first Ohio school to join the national Food Recovery Network — taking leftover dining hall food and, rather than tossing it, donating it to area agencies that fight hunger.

Now, the university is working to ramp up the program, donating more food and involving more students in the process. There are hungry people right down the hill from Denison, and the network ensures that, rather than going to waste, the food goes to them, said S.K. Piper, dining services sustainability manager.

Piper is employed by Bon Appetit, which handles Denison’s food services.
