Campus Kitchens Project Comes to Meredith College

The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) at Meredith College is a new program of the Office of the Chaplain.

In partnership with Belk Dining Hall, Fresh Market, and the NC Food Bank, CKP offers a sustainable approach to food usage in our local community, and is a student-powered hunger relief initiative. The students at Meredith create nutritious meals every week, using food going to waste and donated food.

Every Tuesday students inventory the food collected and create a nutritious menu for the week. On Wednesdays students meet in the lower Belk kitchens, and with the help of our Aramark staff, cook a dinner meal from the collected food.

The meal is delivered to the K-12 after school program at the Kentwood Learning Center, five minutes from Meredith, which is part of a larger poverty initiative of the Office of the Chaplain called the Children’s Collaborative of Wake County. Following the meal, a nutrition education lesson is taught.

CKP is a national non-profit based in Washington, D.C. Meredith is the 36th college campus to become a CKP affiliate, joining North Carolina schools Wake Forest, Elon and ECU.

Volunteer: Campus Kitchens welcomes students, faculty and staff to volunteer. The last week in February, Meredith’s Executive Leadership Team cooked and delivered the meal. To sign up to volunteer, or to receive more information, contact Chapel Intern Amy Brock at brockamy@email.meredith.edu.
