Student-Powered Hunger Relief

A new place at the table

, November 25th, 2013

ckmc_announceAfter months of planning, countless emails and phone calls, and endless enthusiasm, we have a big announcement: please welcome Meredith College to The Campus Kitchens Project network!

We are thrilled to have the Campus Kitchen at Meredith College (CKMC) become our 34th Campus Kitchen nationally and our fourth in North Carolina. During their first months, CKMC will focus primarily on youth hunger and will recover food from campus dining halls, a local Fresh Market grocery store and the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.

Matt, our community development coordinator, spent most of this week down in Raleigh meeting everyone involved with CKMC, walking students through Campus Kitchen best practices and solidified a structure for their weekly operations. As part of this orientation week, the student volunteers with CKMC cooked a dinner of noodles, chicken legs and salad for children at the Kentwood Learning Center. The meal was a hit, and even led one child to announce that the salad was better than his mom made!
