LWC Campus Kitchen Transitions to the Food Recovery Network
By Travis Smith
Lindsey Wilson College has joined forces with the Food Recovery Network and their efforts to fight hunger and food waste. The college's initial effort to help food insecure individuals and families in Adair County was started in 2016 as the LWC Campus Kitchen. The college officially transitioned to the Food Recovery Network at Lindsey Wilson College in November of 2019.
The Food Recovery Network at Lindsey Wilson College will collect food waste from the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining and Conference Center and donate it to those in need in the Adair County Community.
"Food Recovery Network's more simplified model has allowed us to increase the efficiency of our work," said LWC Bonner Program Coordinator Kisha Burton. "With the Food Recovery Network at LWC, we have partnered with JOY Ministries as our Hunger-Fighting Partner. All 60+ former clients of the Campus Kitchen were encouraged to continue receiving food via this new avenue."
The Food recovery network is spread across 44 states and Washington DC. With more than 3 million pounds of food recovered, they hope to feed the United States with perishables that would otherwise go to waste.
Food Recovery Network Executive Director Regina Anderson is excited about the expansion of the organization.
"We're thrilled to welcome these food recovery student leaders into our Network of more than 200 Chapters and we'll work to empower them to continue doing what they do best: recovering and donating surplus food to those in need," said Anderson.
