The Campus Kitchen at UGA

The Campus Kitchen at UGA Food recovery and redistribution program of the UGA Office of Service-Learning.
(7)

The Campus Kitchen at UGA is a student-powered hunger relief organization of the Office of Service-Learning. Each week, students transform unused food from dining halls, grocery stores, restaurants, and farmers markets into meals that are delivered to local agencies serving those in need in Athens, GA. By taking the initiative to run a community kitchen, students develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills, along with a commitment to serve their community. The Campus Kitchen at UGA goes beyond meals by using food as a tool to participate in nutrition education,combat senior isolation, and create dialogues on food policy in the UGA community. The Campus Kitchen at UGA became the 33rd official branch of the Campus Kitchens Project network in the fall of 2012. The Campus Kitchen at UGA focuses on alleviating senior hunger in Athens, GA.

“From addressing the issue of access to fresh and nutritious foods for the students and their families at my school, to organizing a program to reduce waste in the school cafeteria, there are many ways in which my work with the Campus Kitchen at UGA has directly impacted my service with FoodCorps. Looking forward, I hope to build a career involving these issues of focus.” -Gracelyn Jones

Gracelyn graduated in 2017 and is currently a FoodCorps Service Member serving in Jackson County with their School Nutrition Department. Her goal is to connect kids to healthy food in school and to create an environment where healthy food is celebrated through hands-on lessons that build off of classroom curriculum standards and apply them in new and exciting ways either out in the garden or in the classroom.

“I joined Campus Kitchen at UGA to really develop a better connection with the people of Athens, Georgia. As as student at the university it can be easy to forget that this town is a full-time residence for thousands of families. Being a deliverer at Campus Kitchen allows me to directly meet many of these people. While my contribution is small in numbers, it is a direct impact for the families on my delivery route each week.”
-Scott Buchanan 2nd-year Finance major. Scott is a new delivery driver for Campus Kitchen.

The Campus Kitchen at UGA gives students the opportunity to connect with older adults and develop an understanding of the poverty and problems present in our community. Through student leadership positions, we are empowering UGA students to assist in meal distribution to families in need.

“I love working with a team of volunteers for a great cause. It has made me more of a compassionate person and want to give more to others in everything I do. It has made me more grateful for what I have and has made me care more and be more aware of what’s going on in the community around me.” -Allison Vita (4th-Year Health Promotion Major)

Allison is currently a meal planner for Campus Kitchen after previously leading Sunday cooking. Once she graduates she plans to “work for a pubic health organization that strives to reduce health disparities and improve the quality of life for all people.”

By providing experiential learning for UGA students, our program gives students the opportunity to apply academic knowledge to community issues today and after graduation. Learn more about our mission and how to invest in future leaders: https://www.ckuga.org/impact

"It's wonderful food! They bring me vegetables, and I love them." -Mildred Huff (Campus Kitchen client)

1 in 5 Athens-Clarke County residents are food-insecure, while 40% of America’s food is wasted instead of donated. Campus Kitchen helps address these issues by collecting food to prepare from-scratch meals for older adults in our community. Ms.Huff is one of many Campus Kitchen clients that depend on supplemental meals and groceries delivered to her door by our students every other week.

Our Story

The Campus Kitchen at UGA is the student-powered hunger relief program of the UGA Office of Service-Learning. We exist to spotlight sustainable solutions to hunger and food waste and to showcase a mutually beneficial university-community partnership.

Campus Kitchen runs a weekly food recovery and redistribution enterprise led by UGA student volunteers. Student leaders and volunteers together transform unused food from grocery stores and farms into meals and groceries that are delivered to older adults and human service agencies in Athens, Georgia.

The Campus Kitchen at UGA goes beyond providing just meal service by using food as a tool to combat senior isolation, foster community connections, and engage UGA students and faculty in developing sustainable solutions to food waste and hunger.
