Cornell Students for Hunger Relief presented a check of $3,180 to the Friendship Donation Network Thursday.
The organization rescues food that would otherwise go to waste and distributes it to food pantries and soup kitchens in six different counties.
Treasurer Art Pearce says they get some money from local charities and foundations, but they mostly depend on individual contributions.
“Occasionally we get a wonderful donation like this, but other than we depend on individual donations from the community to fund our operations,” Pearce said.
Pearce says the organization has a mission of rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste.
The Friendship Donation Network serves about 2,000 people every week.
