Biographical / Historical

Tufts Food Rescue Collaborative (TFRC) was founded in the fall of 2016 as a partnership between Tufts Dining, the Cambridge non-profit Food For Free (FFF), a number of Tufts academic departments including Enviromental Studies and Tisch College, and Tufts students. Through daily volunteer shifts, TFRC's aims to mitigate the food waste on campus and in the community, as well as to combat food insecurity by providing meals to those in need. TFRC includes two programs: Family Meals in Dewick and Carmichael, and the Leonard Carmichael Society (LCS) Food Rescue program in supermarkets.
