The Campus Kitchen Program has had one main source of transportation for more than 10 years, a minivan named Clementine. Our steadfast and beloved van (which was named by students) has become too worn to carry out our work, so we are in need of a new mode of transportation.
By the Numbers
This is some of what a van allows us to accomplish:
Six = the number of days each week Clementine is used to transport food, students, and staff.
100,000 = the number of meals Clementine has delivered to neighbors in need in the last 10 years.
27,996 = the number of pounds of recovered produce Clementine has hauled in one growing season from local farmers markets so it could be distributed to neighbors in Cedar-Riverside who have little access to fresh food.
Help us Keep on Rolling
We know we’ll have to move on without Clementine, and when a van allows us to get so much done, we know we can’t go for very long without finding a replacement vehicle. Here’s how you can help:
