Start a Campus Kitchen Infor Session »September 23rd 3PM (EST) - September 23rd 4PM (EST)

The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) is a national leader in community service for students and is the future of hunger relief. CKP is empowering the next generation of leaders to implement innovative models for combating hunger, developing food systems and helping communities help themselves.

We partner with high schools, colleges and universities to share on-campus kitchen space, recover food from cafeterias and engage students as volunteers who prepare and deliver meals to the community.

The "How to Start a Campus Kitchen" Info Session will consist of an informative video/webinar presentation about what a Campus Kitchen does and also how to bring this program to your school. The session will allow for ample time for Q&A and will highlight information about our new Campus Kitchen planner and how to qualify for funding through our grant competitions!
