Campus Kitchen at UMass Boston
CKUMB Core Programs
Food Recovery: CKUMB, part of the Campus Kitchens Project, a national nonprofit organization, partners with on-campus dining and local resources to rescue unserved, usable food, reducing waste for donors and food costs for meal recipients
Hunger Relief: Our hunger relief program has three essential components:
- Meal Delivery: Volunteers use donated food and an on-campus kitchen to prepare meals that are delivered to the community.
- Food Security Initiatives: Volunteers engage underserved youth and elders in nutrition education, cooking classes and hands-on gardening to broaden their understanding of healthy eating on a tight budget.
- Senior/SNAP Outreach: Volunteers assist senior clients to apply for SNAP benefits and to access other food assistance.
