Campus Kitchens strengthens 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 educatonal benefits to adults, seniors, children and families in need; and build communities by fostering a new generation of community minded adults through resourceful and mutually beneficial partnerships aming students, social service agencies, businesses and schools.
As students we develop partnerships, plan menus, run cooking shifts, organize drivers, garden and harvest vegetables, and teach nutrition education to children and families. Students keep tract of all the paperwork, organize and develop curriculum and recruit new students to get involved.
At Baylor, we empower thousands of students each year to recycle food from our dining facilities, turn these donations into nourishing meals and deliver those meals to our partner agencies in Waco. We also teach other students how to cook meals in already existing on-campus kitchens. The meals we make are healthy and hearty meals, which include vegetables from our campus community garden.
