The Campus Kitchen at UMass Boston

Read our June newsletter here!

The Campus Kitchens Project is a national, volunteer-driven hunger relief organization empowering the next generation of students to implement innovative models for combating hunger, improving food systems, and helping communities to help themselves. CKUMB partners with on-campus dining and local resources to rescue unserved, usable food, reducing waste for donors and food costs for meal recipients.

Through running an on-campus community kitchen, students at the Campus Kitchen at UMass Boston (CKUMB) develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills that contribute to their successes in future careers well beyond their college years. Students also go “beyond the meal” by establishing community garden initiatives, teaching nutrition education, maintaining client relations, addressing senior nutrition issues, and assisting with food policy reformation events.
