Who We Are

History and National Network

Campus Kitchen collageLaunched in October 2003, the Campus Kitchen at Augsburg began as a unique partnership between Augsburg University, The Campus Kitchens Project, Augsburg Dining Services, and local community agencies. It is a key component of the Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship, which facilitates learning experiences across and beyond the campus through multiple pathways to civic engagement, service-learning, and off-campus student employment.  Augsburg was only the fourth campus to create a Campus Kitchen program, and today there over 60 around the country as part of the Campus Kitchens Project (CKP). The mission of  The Campus Kitchens Project is to use service as a way to:

  • Strengthen Bodies by using existing resources to meet hunger and nutritional needs in our communities
  • Empower Minds by providing leadership and service-learning opportunities to college students, and educational benefits to adults, seniors, children, and families in need
  • Build Communities by fostering a new generation of community-minded adults through resourceful and mutually beneficial partnerships among students, social service agencies, businesses, and universities
