More information about Campus Kitchen:

The Campus Kitchen at Saint Louis University is a food re-purposing program. It receives excess food from grocery stores, catering companies and other organizations and turns it into healthy meals for hungry individuals in the community immediately surrounding the University campus. This program creates and delivers over 500 meals a week for 300 clients. In addition to providing food, it attempts through the deliveries to provide fellowship to clients, many of whom are homebound and do not have much contact with the outside world.

The kitchen also runs several educational programs, including nutritional education and employment training classes for those hoping to break into the culinary field.

If you are local and wish to volunteer with Campus Kitchen in the future please contact Jenny Bird at 314-977-3881 or for more information.
