The Free Food Alert (FFA) was established to reduce food waste from campus events and feed hungry Hopkins community members. It is an innovative platform that allows event hosts to post free food giveaways when there is excess food after their event and for Hopkins community members to receive email and mobile alerts for free food!
Originally developed in 2017 by three Hopkins students, the program has been redeveloped for improved functionality and is now live on the Homewood, Peabody, and East Baltimore campuses!
Reducing food waste is a significant step toward a zero waste future for Johns Hopkins and achieving our sustainability goals. By using Free Food Alert, we can work together to reduce food waste and feed people.
