UVA's Campus Kitchen Project Receives $1,000 Grant

Posted: Updated:

University of Virginia students and a nationwide hunger fighting program are teaming up to help the Charlottesville community.

UVA's chapter of the Campus Kitchen project has received a $1,000 grant. The group takes food the UVA dining halls would normally throw away and transforms it into meals for those in need.

"It's just really just a local effort, a local community like responsible hunger relief effort, we're trying to reduce food waste for UVA, and just you know give back to the community by just trying the food year-round both semesters," said Kevin Nguyen, Food, Logistics and Resource Coordinator with Campus Kitchen.

One group member says the money will specifically help the group with their Super Bowl project this spring, during which the group will cook soup for people in the community who may otherwise go without.
