Event Partner

Campus Kitchen Project

The Campus Kitchens Project and Generation No Kid Hungry are partnering to raise hunger awareness and give students the chance to enact tangible impact through a "Drive to Hunger Awareness" event. A Drive to Hunger Awareness is a food drive and hunger awareness forum to help students join the fight to end hunger. This is an event for students, by students. Learn more here! 

Founded in 2001, The Campus Kitchens Project is a national organization that empowers student volunteers to fight hunger and food waste in their community. On over 50 university and high school campuses across the country, students transform unused food from dining halls, grocery stores, restaurants, and farmers’ markets into meals that are delivered to local agencies serving those in need. By taking the initiative to run a community kitchen, students develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills, along with a commitment to serve their community, that they will carry with them into future careers. Each Campus Kitchen goes beyond meals by using food as a tool to promote poverty solutions, implement garden initiatives, participate in nutrition education, and convene food policy events.

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

Generation No Kid Hungry is partnering with the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness and the National Coalition for the Homeless to promote Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. This event takes place each year during the week prior to Thanksgiving. Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is designed to educate the public, draw attention to the problem of poverty, and build up the base of volunteers and supporters for anti-poverty agencies. Participating local groups spend this week generating publicity about hunger and homelessness and holding education, service, fundraising, and advocacy events to engage their local community. This amazing event was first held at Villanova University in 1975. This year, more than 750 colleges, churches, and community groups across the country will come together to raise awareness about the pressing issues of hunger and homelessness.
