UIndy’s chapter of the Food Recovery Network is featured in an Indianapolis Recorder newspaper story headlined “UIndy students recover pounds of food for community.”

Founded last year by junior Brittany Finigan, the student organization rescues uneaten food from UIndy Dining Services and packages it for delivery to local organizations that serve the needy.
