About

Community Partner Liaison

Do you love meeting new people and connecting with your community? Are you interested in working with an innovative non-profit organization? Are you passionate about fighting hunger in the Boston area?

The Campus Kitchen Project is a national leader in community engagement and hunger relief on 53 campuses around the country. Our program empowers the next generation of leaders to implement innovative models for combating hunger, enhancing food systems, and connecting communities. We partner with high schools, colleges, and universities to share on-campus kitchen space, recover food from cafeterias, and engage students as leaders.

This volunteer powered initiative provides opportunities to plan menus, run cooking shifts, organize deliveries, garden, glean, teach nutrition education classes and conduct SNAP outreach.
