3 recover food 是什么意思(重点是recover的理解)

If that’s hard to understand, let’s keep it as simple as the arugula at the back of my refrigerator. Mike Curtin sees my arugula story all the time — but for him, it’s more like 12 boxes of donated strawberries nearing their last days. Curtin is CEO of DC Central Kitchen in Washington, D.C., which recovers foodand turns it into healthy meals. Last year it recovered more than 807,500 pounds of food by taking donations and collecting blemished (有瑕疵的) produce that otherwise would have rotted in fields. And the strawberries? Volunteers will wash, cut, and freeze or dry them for use in meals down the road.

我在前面提了一个问题,引用了上面这段材料(2022年新高考全国卷1阅读B),但仔细看还有一个问题:文中的 recover food 怎么理解理解啊?重点是不理解 recover 的意思,我查了一下词典,recover 的用法如下,但没有一条套得上文中 recover 的用法:
