Physiology major Maya Swinehart was featured in a story by KPLU for her leadership in establishing a certified chapter of the Food Recovery Network at SPU. Through the efforts of Maya and her team, leftover food from Dining Services is being recovered to feed the homeless at Peter's Place, a shelter in South Seattle. SPU is now one of three universities in Washington state (and the first private college) involved in the Food Recovery Network. Congratulations, Maya!
