UMB Free


UMB FREE (Food Recovery + Environmental Eating) is a food rescue initiative aiming to minimize food waste and feed students at UMB.


As of February 17, 2023:

  • A form has been created for event planners and managers to submit leftover food alerts
  • A listserv has been created for members of the UMB community to be alerted when events have leftover food
  • Alerts have gone out for leftover food at several campus events

For more detailed information, visit the UMB FREE webpage.

Alignment with Strategic Plan:

Waste and Procurement: Promote source reduction, reuse, and recycling & composting across UMB's campus.

Waste and Procurement: Promote sustainable eating practices (locally-sourced, plant-forward, and low-waste) among the UMB population.
