About 

Fighting waste, feeding people. Students taking action to help those in need. A chapter of the Food Recovery Network. 

Mission 

To help promote sustainability and feed the hungry of the Upper Valley by recovering food that would otherwise be thrown away and delivering it to local shelters. 

Project Overview 

We are Dartmouth Feeding Neighbors, a volunteer student organization dedicated to redistributing excess consumable food and delivering it to homeless shelters and food kitchens in the Upper Valley. The donations we receive go to the purchasing of containers that we use to transport the food, as well as events we throw to educate students about food insecurity.

Description 

Dartmouth Feeding Neighbors is a 100% volunteer/nonprofit organization that is dedicated to fighting hunger in the Upper Valley as part of the Food Recovery Network. Founded in February of 2014, DFN is comprised of Dartmouth College students who devote their time, energy, and resources to feeding those in low-income and vulnerable communities.

Students take leftover food from The Class of 1953 Food Commons and local restaurants, weigh and inventory it, and then transport it to Upper Valley homeless shelters and food kitchens.

Dartmouth Feeding Neighbors kindly thanks Dartmouth Dining Services, Everything But Anchovies, 3 Guys Basement Barbecue, and Murphy's on the Green for their generosity and contribution to our community.
