Student Food Rescue (SFR) is one of the largest student-run food salvage programs in the country. Volunteers pick up donated food from local farmers markets, bakeries, restaurants, and grocery stores and drop it off at over 20 recipient sites around the Greater Boston Area. It’s a ton of fun and great way to explore Boston while doing good. To help keep this program running we need your help! Sign up for a weekly food run this summer HERE!
