Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ideas. That’s the case with the Food Recovery Network, which collects leftovers from restaurants and campuses that are destined for trash dumpsters and distributes this perfectly edible cuisine to the homeless and needy.

According to National Public Radio’s WAMU, the idea originated with students at the University of Maryland, and is now poised to go regional and be implemented throughout Montgomery County, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC., with lots of affluence but also hidden pockets of poverty.

The program also has expanded to 27 college campuses and will triple that by year’s end, WAMU reports.
