Emory Food Chain

Emory Food Chain (EFC) is a student run organization that reduces food waste on Emory’s campus and fights hunger in our greater Atlanta community. We collect food from our campus dining halls and local grocery stores that would otherwise go to waste and donate it to shelters and other community partners .

Our organization runs on many different shifts made possible by student volunteers. Our pick up shifts recover food from dining halls and grocery stores that our delivery and service shifts bring to our community partners. Our gardening shifts maintain the Cox Hall garden that is part of Emory’s Educational Garden program. The produce from our garden is then used in our cooking shifts to create meals that are also donated to community partners.

During the 2017-2018 school year, Emory Food Chain was able to repurpose 8,870 pounds of food which created roughly 7,400 meals for food insecure individuals in our greater Atlanta community.
