Campus Kitchen is a student-led food recovery and redistribution program that transforms unused food into meals and groceries for older adults and human service agencies in Athens. Student leaders manage volunteer activities including food recovery from local grocery stores and farmer’s markets, from-scratch cooking shifts, and door-to-door meal deliveries to client families in need.

The dollars raised through this GeorgiaFunder project will be used to purchase Campus Kitchen’s first-ever food truck. Currently, operations are restricted to shared community kitchens, so the food truck will be the first kitchen space they will have as their own. It will be used for a few different things, all run by UGA students:

  • Running free breakfast program around the community for low-income K-12 students so that they can get breakfast before they get on the school bus in the morning.
  • Running garden to table summer camp programs for low-income middle school students during the summer. This will be through our sister program Grow It Know It, a program supported by Peter Dale.
  • Allowing Campus Kitchen to process extra produce on site at UGArden so that it can be preserved for future use.

The $2,500 raised through this project will be immediately matched by the University of Georgia’s Young Alumni Council for a grand total of $5,000!
