Food recovery

Join the UM chapter of the Food Recovery Network to reduce food insecurity and food waste in our community.

Over 30% of everything we produce ends up in the trash, meanwhile there are over 200,000 people who are food insecure living in Miami-Dade county alone! Anyone interested in joining our chapter, applying for a leadership position, or simply wishing to support our reactivation may fill out this form. For more information, contact Natalia Brown

UM DINING partners with MIAMI RESCUE MISSION to serve food to the homeless and the needy.

Last year alone, our Dining Halls, our Food Court and Catering services gave 3.5 tons of food to this great organization, the equivalent of 5000 ready to eat meals. The Miami Rescue Mission Campus has served the homeless and needy since 1922. The administration offices, Center for Men, Center for Women and Children, Jeffrey A. Tew Education Center, Community Activity Center-which provides out of school and summer programs for children, Food Warehouse, Health Clinic, and Thrift Stores are located in a three block area off NW 1st Ave. and NW 20th Street.
