Fighting food waste since 2011.
For the past six years, Cam and Mia have been on a mission to reduce food waste in America. As students they cofounded Food Recovery Network, a national nonprofit that has empowered college students on over 200 college campuses across the country to recover and donate nearly two million pounds of perfectly good surplus food. Now, through Eatable, they raise awareness about the issue of food waste in America and support businesses outside of higher education implement food recovery processes in their operations.
