Campus Kitchens Project
The Campus Kitchens Project is an emerging leader in community service for students and resourceful anti-hunger programs for communities around the country.
What we do is kind of a no-brainer. We know there are people in every community who need nourishing meals and we know that every college campus has unserved food in its dining halls and brilliant students in its classrooms. So we put them all together!
We empower thousands of students each year to recycle food from their cafeterias, turn these donations into nourishing meals, and deliver those meals to those who need it most.
The best part is that students run the whole show. They plan the menus, get the food, run the cooking shifts, organize the drivers, and teach culinary skills to unemployed adults. Then, they keep track of all of the paperwork (so we know everything's being done safely), organize fundraisers, develop curriculum, and recruit new students to get involved. They accomplish an incredible amount of work every day!
Campus Kitchens Events
From February 21-28, the Campus Kitchen at Auburn University is competing against Campus Kitchens at other institutions across the country in the Raise the Dough Challenge. The school that raises the most money will receive $1,000 to go toward their local efforts. With that funding, we would be able to build long-term solutions to hunger and food waste, and we’re reaching out to YOU to help us win! You can help by:
- Donating $10 or any desired amount by clicking here
- Sharing this with friends via social media
- Asking three friends to commit a $10 donation each (The school with the highest number of donors will win $750!)
Your support is greatly appreciated!
