Your application to renew Food Recovery Verification for Bon Appetit at Seattle University has been processed and approved. Thank you for donating your surplus food to Food Lifeline. Food Recovery Network is grateful to have Seattle University in our network and is excited to verify that you are alleviating food waste by feeding hungry people. We will ship you a new FRV window sticker today. In the meantime, we have included a digital copy of our logo to this email that you can use for your website, online content, and paper publications. We want to let everyone know that Seattle University is doing its part to reduce food waste and fight hunger. If you take a picture of your Food Recovery Verified window sticker (optionally including members of your team!) and pass it on to us, we would be happy to share it across our social media platforms. Thank you for your commitment to feeding people and not landfills. Please feel free to contact us at foodrecoveryverified@foodrecoverynetwork.org with any questions. Kind Regards, Food Recovery Verified Team"
