Student-Powered Hunger Relief
The Campus Kitchen at William & Mary (CKWM) is part of The Campus Kitchens Project, a program developed by DC Central Kitchen. At the moment, there are 29 colleges and 2 high schools across the country in the network with several additional sites opening up in the near future.
The mission of The Campus Kitchens Project is three-fold, using service to accomplish the following:
- Strengthen Bodies by using existing resources to meet hunger and nutritional needs in our community;
- Empower Minds by providing leadership and service learning opportunities to students, and educational benefits to adults, seniors, children, and families in need; and
- Build Communities by fostering a new generation of community-minded adults through resourceful and mutually beneficial partnerships among students, social service agencies, businesses and schools.
What we do is a no-brainer. We know there are people in every community who need nourishing meals. And, we know that every college campus has unserved food in its dining halls and brilliant students in its classrooms, not to mention the excess food in surrounding grocery stores and restaurants. We put them all together.
