Proceeds Benefit: 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 waste and hunger in the UGA community.
