UK Campus Kitchen

  • December 22, 2014
    University of Kentucky students have launched their own Campus Kitchen and several Lexington residents now know where their next meal is coming from.The Campus Kitchens Project is a national organization that empowers student volunteers to fight hunger in their community. The Campus Kitchen at the University of Kentucky provides free, nutritious meals to Lexington citizens by using food that would otherwise go to waste. Through a partnership with UK’s dining partner Aramark, students recently began collecting unused food from locations such as dining halls, grocery stores, restaurants and farms. Program organizers estimate they will collect enough food to provide several hundred Lexingtonians with a meal each week. The Campus Kitchen group at UK has partnered with the Lexington Senior Center, Catholic Action Center, Hope Center and the Martin Luther King Academy to reach those in need. Additional information can be found at
