Mustangs Fight Local Hunger

March 6, 2018 7 AM

A new club at Stevenson University called the Food Recovery Club has recently started as of February 20, 2018. This club’s purpose is to recover food to serve to those in need in the Owings Mills community.

The elimination of food waste is one of the concerns of the Food Recovery Club.

The Food Recovery Network itself is a non-profit, environmental and humanitarian organization through which students across the nation join together to help diminish the recurring issue of world hunger. The Food Recovery Network serves as an outlet for those who want to serve others by recovering food and giving it to those in need.

The Stevenson connection started with students Lydia Hillman, Autumn Mento, and Kaujae Blackwood, and the director of Center for Environmental Stewardship, Dr. Kimberly Tucker.

“Our mission is to end food waste and hunger in our community,” said Hillman, president of the club. “The establishment of this organization will give students the opportunity to make a positive difference on campus and in their community.”

Volunteers in the Food Recovery Club will not only spread the word to prevent world hunger, but also aid in the transportation of food from Stevenson to local shelters in Baltimore. The club’s current partner agencies are all within close distance to the Owings Mills campus. Partner agencies include Sarah’s Hope at Hannah More, a women and family shelter, and INNterim House, a local homeless shelter.
