UK Fires Up its Campus Kitchen
University of Kentucky students have successfully launched their own campus kitchen that is serving residents of Lexington. As a part of the Campus Kitchens Project, a national organization that empowers student volunteers to fight hunger in their community, UK students are providing free meals to people with food that would otherwise go to waste. Students have been collecting food from different locations: dining halls, grocery stores, restaurants and farms. The current estimate is that there will be enough food collected to serve several hundred meals a week.
