Waste less, feed more: UW-Green Bay Campus Kitchen set for official launch

After a hard-fought grant competition and a semester’s worth of preparation, UW-Green Bay officially will launch its Campus Kitchen Saturday (May 3), turning leftover dining service food into delicious, healthy meals for those in need. We told you this winter about the efforts of the Feeding the Hungry and Reducing Waste student organization, which earned a $5,000 Campus Kitchens start-up grant after placing in the top five of a nationwide competition. Working in conjunction with the Social Work program, a dedicated team of students and others have laid the groundwork for Saturday’s launch, which will take place during the lunch hour at Fort Howard Apartments on Green Bay’s near west side. With that meal, UW-Green Bay will become one of 36 schools — and only three in Wisconsin — that are part of the national network. Our news release has the details.
