Campus Kitchen at Washington and Lee

The mission of The Campus Kitchen at Washington and Lee (CKWL) is to use service as a way to strengthen bodies, empower minds, and build communities. At CKWL we combat hunger and promote nutrition by recovering and reusing food that would otherwise go to waste into balanced meals for low-income members of the community in Rockbridge County. Volunteers also develop valuable relationships with clients.

We seek to educate our students through providing opportunities for leadership; engaging a distinctive population in our community; initiating nutrition programs in the community; promoting awareness of nutrition and hunger issues; and stimulating research on hunger. Although Campus Kitchen provides meals locally, its effort to educate students has national and global significance.
