According to the CNCS website, “the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll recognizes institutions of higher education that support exemplary community service programs and raise the visibility of effective practices in campus community partnerships.” It is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve for its commitment to service.

In the last academic year, these schools recruited 4,420 new Campus Kitchen volunteers who spent 52,692 hours recovering 841,930 pounds of food to create 217,246 healthy meals for their clients. What’s more, many of them went beyond those meals and implemented programming aimed at addressing the underlying root causes of hunger in their communities, like nutrition education classes, a backpack program that supplies children with food for the weekend, community gardens and so much more, living out our mission to use service as a tool to strengthen bodies, empower minds and build communities.
