Local Community

Giving back to North Philadelphia

Food Recovery Network: We will strive to make Temple a Food Recovery Network school. This program takes left over perishable food on campus (either from food courts or other food providers) and donates it to local communities in need. This project aims to solve both food waste and hunger. This would be an excellent way further close an all too apparent gap between Temple University and the local North Philadelphia region. It also provides students an opportunity to participate in meaningful community service. The founders of Food Recovery Network are currently arranging a national partnership with Sodexo. http://www.foodrecoverynetwork.org

Expand Adopt A Block program: Our administration will continue to build on the success of the Adopt-A-Block program. TSG will allocate “over flow” blocks where we will place students who are not in an organization into teams to clean up blocks.
