Campus Kitchens is a unique organization that combats the unacceptable amount of food wasted in our society by "recycling" unwanted but usable food to fight against hunger in our communities. Campus Kitchens at Gonzaga University is one of about 25 branches of the nationwide Campus Kitchens organization. CKGU takes food from many sources (such as our own COG and the Second Harvest Food Bank) to provide delicious and balanced meals for those in need around our Spokane community. Since programming started in 2005, CKGU has recovered 98,362 pounds of food, served 92,397 meals, and added 15,294 hours of service to the Spokane community. These figures represent approximately $781,477 in food and services invested right here in Spokane!
If you want to be a part of this innovative organization, we'd love to have you! We can always use volunteers in all aspects of the CK chain: picking up food, preparing, delivering, and serving. Feel free to show up to a shift, and someone will be there to help show you how to put your talents to good use. If you have further questions or are interested in the Leadership Team of CK (students in charge of a cooking or delivery shift), then email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509-313-6939.
