Attendees will get an in depth look at The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) and will be empowered to bring the program to their school. CKP students on 61 campuses are already transforming unused food from dining halls into meals that are delivered to those in need. The session will highlight what Campus Kitchens do and how to bring the program to their school. It will also provide methodology on topics like Asset-Based Community Development and community asset mapping, which are valuable when applied to any student service enterprise and show how these teachings are used by Campus Kitchens to break down barriers between schools and the surrounding communities. We will highlight how Campus Kitchens use “food as a tool” to provide more than just meals and strengthen the community as a whole. The entire affiliation process, as well as the value of CKP will be presented and attendees will leave this session with the knowledge and tools to go back to their school and start a Campus Kitchen.
