Help Fight Hunger in Winston-Salem

The Winston-Salem Chapter will honor Pro Humanitate on June 1 by cooking and packaging meals for the Campus Kitchen at Wake Forest from 3-5 pm in Benson University Center. There will be a registration table in front of the Benson, facing the Quad.

The group asks that volunteers wear close-toed shoes and long pants. There will be an after event celebration at Shorty's starting at 5 pm.

Campus Kitchen is a food recycling program that uses cooked but never served food from the campus dining hall to make healthy and nutritious meals to fight hunger and poverty in the greater Winston-Salem area. The program reuses an average of 600 pounds of food monthly, making it one of the university's premier sustainability initiatives. 

Student volunteers develop partnerships, plan menus, run cooking shifts, organize drivers, garden, clean, and teach nutrition education to children and families.
