688,148 Pounds

I was introduced to today’s Eat. LOVE. Inspire through theSkimm (a free subscription I HIGHLY recommend to all). This one is close to my heart because it started as a way to reach the 1 in 8 people in D.C. struggling with hunger. Read here how a few students at the University of Maryland started a grassroots movement to save and donate the leftover food on college campuses which has grown to 125 colleges in 31 states and the District of Columbia, and has recovered 688, 148pounds of food to date  with support from Sodexo, Bon Appétit Management Company, Chartwells and many independent dining providers. Then, learn how to get involved
