Campus Kitchens Project at St. Lawrence University

The Campus Kitchens at St. Lawrence

Special Note: Mask Required.

Community Mentor: 

Agency and Placement Location: Meals are prepared in the Eben Holden kitchen at St. Lawrence and served at the Canton Unitarian Church (3 1/2 E Main St, Canton, NY 13617, less than a mile from campus)

Mission: According to their website, Campus Kitchens Project (CKP) started at St. Lawrence in 2010 when one of its students applied for a CKP grant as a Senior project. It has since become a vitally important service that community members-at-large depend on for shared meals and fellowship. Every single week, 52 weeks of the year, St. Lawrence students and community volunteers turn food that would otherwise be wasted from campus dining halls and local farms into delicious, nutritionally balanced, three-course meals. The program provides leadership and service learning opportunities to students while helping to meet nutritional and social needs of adults, seniors, children and families in the community. 

Projects: 

  • Students placed on Sunday from 2:00pm-4:00pm: will be tasked with creating a menu and prepping the ingredients. This includes chopping vegetables and baking desserts. 
  • Students placed on Monday from 2:30pm-4:30pm: will be cooking the meal and preparing it for delivery.
  • Students placed on Monday from 4:30pm-6:30pm: will be assisting with "meal delivery" and clean up.
