As an affiliate, we have adopted the CKP mission to use services as a tool to: Strengthen Bodies by using existing resources to meet hunger and nutritional needs in our community. Empower Minds by providing leadership and service learning opportunities to students, and educational benefits to adults, seniors, children and families in need. Build Communities by fostering a new generation of community-minded adults through resourceful and mutually beneficial partnerships among students, social service agencies, businesses and schools.
The Campus Kitchen at the University of Kentucky (CKUK) is an on-campus student service organization that provides a sustainable approach to reducing food waste on college campuses while also providing healthy meals to those struggling with hunger.
It was established in April, 2014 with faculty support from the Department of Dietetics & Human Nutrition. CKUK is an affiliate of the national The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP), which in 2016 recognized CKUK as "Campus Kitchen of the Year" out of nearly sixty across the nation.
