Campus Kitchens Project | St. Lawrence University Volunteer Services

Campus Kitchens Project

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. 

The meals, prepared at St. Lawrence and served at the Canton Unitarian Church, are open to anyone free of charge.

It takes many volunteers to procure food, and prepare and serve these meals. If you'd like to help, please contact Volunteer Services at 229-5135 or for details. We'd love to have you join us!
