About Us

Who We Are

The Campus Kitchen at Northwestern University (CKNU) is part of a national non-profit organization called The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP). CKP is a national leader in community service and is part of the future of hunger relief. Since its inception, CKNU has recovered, re-purposed, and redistributed 273,000 pounds of food that would otherwise go wasted. We use that food to create 35,000 balanced meals for low-income Evanston residents every year. As a volunteer-driven organization, we wouldn’t be able to serve our community without the generous help of students and community members!

What We Do

The Campus Kitchen at Northwestern (CKNU) recovers food from campus dining halls and local organizations that would otherwise go wasted and re-purposes it into balanced meals for food insecure individuals in the Evanston community. We also lead "Beyond the Meal" community outreach programs including Nutrition Education and SNAP outreach.
