The Campus Kitchen at IUPUI (CKIUPUI) is a student-powered food rescue and hunger relief initiative and a model of social, economic, and environmental entrepreneurship where students address social challenges with sustainable solutions.
CKIUPUI rescues food from going to waste, transforms it into healthy meals, and serves to those experiencing food insecurity on campus and in the community. CKIUPUI employs a lean operating model of utilizing rescued food, existing university kitchen space, and volunteers to prepare and serve meals.
CKIUPUI is administered by IUPUI Sustainability with direct support from IUPUI Food Services. CKIUPUI would not exist without the support provided by our campus and community partners. Running a Campus Kitchen builds leadership skills, offers entrepreneurial opportunities, and fosters personal and community relationships students use today and carry with them into future careers.
