Other Service Opportunities
Unable to join one of our scheduled AFO (Alumni for Others) events, but still want to give back in your community?
Creating a project doesn't have to be difficult or too time-consuming. Instead, contact a community resource center in your area and join an existing program. Make use of the resources provided by national or local service agencies, such as Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, Easter Seals, or Goodwill Industries.
The Food Recovery Network (FRN) is the largest student-led food recovered movement in the nation with chapters at over 70 universities across the United States. Active on our campus since May 2014, FRN has organized deliveries of over 1,500 pounds of food left over from SCU's dining services (Bon Appetit). Leftover edible food is packed and ready for volunteers to pick up and deliver to Martha's Kitchen in downtown San Jose. Volunteering to transport the food takes less than an hour. Email Food Recovery Network, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information about how you can get involved.
