Campus Kitchen Pro Humanitate Project:
While most Wake Forest students are away for the summer, the hunger needs served by Campus Kitchen never lessen. Recruit a few friends and sign up for a 3 hour Summer Feeding Program Cooking Shift. Visit this volunteer hub to select a day and time that works for you!
Over the summer, the Campus Kitchen at Wake Forest University (CKWFU) receives federal funding as a sponsor for the Summer Food Service Program. The program provides summer meals to students who are eligible for free and reduced price lunch during the academic year. Each weekday, CKWFU serves breakfast and lunch for fifty children who are on campus as part of the Anna Julia Cooper Center Freedom School. CKWFU focuses on providing high quality fresh meals that allow children to try new foods and eat a healthy well balanced meal. In the first year of operation last year CKWFU, won a NC Rising Star Award which recognizes a new sponsor that ran a superior first year of operation with a menu that promoted a healthy lifestyle and a Bronze level Turnip the Beet nutrition award from the USDA. Please join us in helping make summer meals possible in our community!
