In January 2014, students and staff at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) participated in the Campus Kitchen Project first-ever launch grant video competition and won $5,000 to start a Campus Kitchen. Since then, they've been coordinating with dining services, creating partnerships with other community organizations and recruiting excited volunteers. The IUPUI Campus Kitchen had their grand opening on September 5th, 2014.
The Campus Kitchen at IUPUI (CKIUPUI) is the 37th Campus Kitchen and the first to open in the state of Indiana. We will operate out of the kitchen in the IUPUI Campus Center and initially recover food that would have otherwise gone to waste from Chartwells-run IUPUI Food Service. This food will then be used to create nutritious meals for clients in the Indianapolis community. CKIUPUI will also partner with Wheeler Mission Ministries, an organization that provides programs and services for the homeless and those in need. The Campus Kitchen is sponsored by the IUPUI Office of Sustainability.Learn more about the national impact of Campus Kitchen
