Each Campus Kitchen applicant must have a sponsoring office – a department or entity housed within the school who provides oversight, office space (often just access to a computer in an existing, shared office space) and a “home” for the work of the Campus Kitchen. This responsibility does not necessarily include financial support, but some sponsoring offices do provide financial assistance. Most often, the sponsoring office is a community service, service learning, campus ministry or similar department, but can also be an academic department. The sponsoring office cannot be the dining services department, unless specific permission is granted. (Dining services is a second, equally important partner in this process.)
Please have your potential sponsoring office complete the following feasibility study to the best of their ability. Their honest assessment of the office’s feasibility helps understand which sponsoring office will be the best fit for your Campus Kitchen. We ask that you think creatively about how we could accommodate your school’s unique opportunities and challenges, but don’t hold back your honest concerns.
