Life on Campus

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.
