Congratulations to The Campus Kitchens Project

We want to wish a congratulations to The Campus Kitchens Project for just having launched their 39th Campus Kitchen at Saint Peter's University (located in Jersey City, NJ)!

In late August, Campus Kitchens ran a drive with us for a few weeks, raising around $1,500 in additional food to subsidize their new kitchen, and to ensure that each meal going out to the community is full, healthy, and balanced. Check out their drive here.

As a little background, Campus Kitchens partners with high schools, colleges and universities across the nation to create student-run kitchens, to keep food from going to waste, and to then transform it into nutritious meals for those in the community struggling with food insecurity. The kitchen space and cafeteria is run by student volunteers, who take on everything from planning menus to gardening to teaching nutrition education to children and families.

The new Campus Kitchens at St. Peter's U (CKSPU) officially opened last Thursday on the 18th. For more details, and to watch the students & staff video that won St. Peter's University the Campus Kitchen grant, visit their page.

Hooray again! We're excited to see another Campus Kitchens project succeed, and for more inspiring work being done in treating hunger in our community.
