Razorback Food Recovery
Who We Are
Razorback Food Recovery (RFR) is a student-led Volunteer Action Center (VAC) Signature Program that works to recover surplus food items and redistribute it to those in need within the Fayetteville
What We Do
A strong partnership with Chartwells Dining Services allows RFR volunteers to recover and package unused food items from campus retail stores and dining locations across the University of Arkansas Campus. These items are then donated to various community partners as well as our own Full Circle Food Pantry, which uses some recovered items to address food insecurity amongst students and staff.
How to Get Involved
To get involved with Razorback Food Recovery, students may serve on a weekly basis for shifts that involve either a 1hr shift t or 1.5hrs shift. Volunteers assist in the recovery, packaging, and transportation of the recovered food items to our local partners while promoting our program through outreach and awareness of food waste on campus.
