The Campus Kitchen at Campbell University (CKCU) empowers student volunteers to fight hunger in their community. Students transform unused food from dining halls, grocery stores, restaurants, and farmer’s markets into meals that are delivered to local agencies serving those in need.
CKCU launched in 2016 and is fueled by the energy of student volunteers. Volunteers are trained in proper food safety and sanitation and then develop menus, work in the kitchen, deliver meals, and learn socially-responsible leadership skills.
These meals are often accompanied by nutrition education with a focus on healthy eating, occasional health education and basic screenings, and other informative programming provided by Campbell University students, faculty, and staff. CKCU also strives to reclaim food to decrease the amount of food waste in our community.
CKCU would not be possible without the help of our student and community volunteers.
Ways you can get involved:
- Serve on our student leadership team.
- Hold a supplies drive for us.
- Donate money so we can purchase supplies needed for meals.
- Become a food donation partner. Donations are tax-deductible and protected by the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
