Shippensburg Univ. students form local Food Recovery Network
The program provides surplus campus food to the community.
SHIPPENSBURG, Penn.—Shippensburg University student Christina Qawasmy was working on a class project when she decided to start a Food Recovery Network chapter on her local campus.
But the experience proved to be an eye-opener, and she is now looking for ways to expand the program, which provides food for neighbors in need.
“It started out as an assignment for class,” said Qawasmy, who runs the Food Recovery Network chapter along with Sarah Maize, Morgan Livingston and Amanda Wheeler. “We’re all social work students, and we take a class called Practice with Organizations and Communities. As part of that class, we were assigned to test and pilot this program.
