After becoming jaded with the world as a college student, Cam Pascual became passionate about the issue of food waste. She decided to approach the issue from a new perspective, banding together friends to create the Food Recovery Network. By the time she graduated, Food Recovery Network grew to 150 chapters at colleges across the country that has recovered and donated over 1 million pounds of food.

Cam Pascual is a cofounder and the Director of Innovation at Food Recovery Network, a nonprofit that unites college students across the country in recovering the surplus, unsold food from food businesses and donating it to hunger-fighting nonprofits. Since cofounding Food Recovery Network as a student group when she was 19, the organization has grown to become the largest student movement against hunger with chapters at 170 colleges and universities in 40 states.
