Zach Hayes started a Food Recovery Network campus club. The group gathers leftover food that is still good but would otherwise be thrown away, and donates it to local organizations. 4,600 pounds of food have been donated to two nonprofits since the club’s inception. Zach wears many hats as an environmentalist, advocate, and campus leader, yet he will put on another when donning his graduation cap this spring. He hopes to find a job within the city, keeping in mind his goal to make it a better place. #UMFlintGrad
