EFFORT is a small organization comprised of students from the University of Scranton working in conjunction with Campus Ministries' Center for Service and Social Justice. EFFORT, or “Excess Food For Others Recovery Team,” is attempting to begin a movement against hunger and for poverty awareness, both on our campus and in the surrounding area. Our purpose is to build relationships with Scranton students and dining services, companies, and corporations in the attempt to salvage leftover food and donate it to those in need in the Scranton community. By valuing justice and solidarity among all people, our hope is to create social change for the benefit of our neighbors in need.

If you or your company would like us to pick up food donations or you are a student wishing to be a part of this organization, please contact our Director at Patricia.Vaccaro@scranton.edu
