Ram Food Recovery Program:

Ram Food Recovery is a program that supports CSU students and employees experiencing food insecurity by sending text alerts for food leftover from catered events within Housing & Dining Services. If a catered event has any food leftover at the end of the
event, catering staff send a text alert to subscribers with date, time, and location of food pick-up. Participants generally have a 30 minute window for food pick-up. 

Anyone with a CSU ID is welcome to sign up for text alerts for these meals. As catering returns to campus on a limited basis this summer, we will have a few events and we hope to have the program fully return in the fall.
