THE STORY:

Hello everyone =) I have recently begun my journey towards becoming Diwata Macalino, MS, RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). In my heart, I not only want to share my knowledge with those with special dietary needs, but I also desire to reduce waste and fight hunger. So for my 30th birthday, I would like to ask for your help.

A couple months ago, my sister posted a video about Food Recovery Network (http://www.foodrecoverynetwork.org/) on Facebook and originally thought "This is amazing! I wish CSUN had something like this!" It was not until a few weeks after that I finally thought "Wait, I could start this at CSUN!" Now, I am in the process of starting a FRN chapter at CSUN. My ultimate goal for this chapter is to have multiple organizations on campus take on the responsibility of one food recovery every other week and deliver the food to a local partner to serve to their patrons - gravely reducing waste and providing a hot meal to someone of our community that really needs it. Additionally, I hope to create lasting partnerships between organizations on campus as well as with our partnering community organizations and eventually become an official non-profit organization on the CSU Northridge campus.

The annual cost for a FRN chapter varies depending on the amount of recovered food, distance to partnering organizations, and gas prices. In establishing a new chapter, there will be costs dedicated to materials such as thermometers, foil pans, gloves, and food scales. I have my goal set at $1000 to provide funds for the first few years of CSUN's FRN chapter. Any and all excess funds will be donated directly to FRN to expand and provide hot meals to more people across the country. Thank you in advance and I appreciate your time, consideration, and support.
