Are you interested in bringing our program to your campus? We have a great opportunity for any school interested in serving senior citizens in their community: a grant competition made possible by AARP Foundation.
Any group or individual interested in learning more about starting a Campus Kitchen can obtain access to the Campus Kitchen Planner, which details the step-by-step collaborative planning process. Our entire process is laid out on a single page so you can easily see what you’ve accomplished and what needs to happen next. Even better, each planning task can be assigned to an individual, and then physically checked off a list when it’s complete!
After registering for this great tool, we hope you’ll participate in our launch grant video competition, which will provide three schools $5,000 grants to open a Campus Kitchen. To qualify for the competition, a planning team must obtain the following documents (all of which are outlined in the planner) by May 16:
- letter of support from sponsoring office
- letter of support from dining services
- letter of support from student leader group
- letter of intent from school administration
Qualified teams will then create short videos explaining why their community would benefit from a senior-serving Campus Kitchen. We’ll select up to 10 finalists to compete, and then anyone can vote for their favorite video. The schools that receive the most votes on their video will win $5,000 each!
