Good Food, Great Idea: Student-Led Solution to Hunger Hits 1,000,000 Meal Milestone
Date:10/20/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday, October 22, student volunteers in 20 cities across the nation will prepare and deliver the one-millionth meal to neighbors in need through The Campus Kitchens Project, a national student-powered hunger relief organization.

The Campus Kitchens Project partners with high schools, colleges and universities to share on-campus kitchen space, recover unused food from cafeterias, work with local farms for produce and engage students as volunteers who plan menus, prepare and deliver meals to the community.

"There are people in every community that need nourishing meals. And every college campus has un-served food in its dining facilities and eager students in its classrooms. At Campus Kitchens, we put them all together," said Robert Egger, founder of DC Central Kitchen, which created The Campus Kitchens Project. "It's exciting to see this milestone reached."

Since 2001, the Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) has provided healthy meals to their neighbors in need by harnessing the spirit of student volunteerism within local communities. Now in its eighth year, CKP operates on 20 college and high school campuses, providing meals to individuals and families in their communities. Thanks to the support of Sodexo, General Mills and the Corporation for National and Community Service, Campus Kitchens continues to grow. More information on The Campus Kitchens Project is available at www.campuskitchens.org.
