Mission Statement/Objectives:

 

The Campus Kitchen at Saint Louis University rescues food that would otherwise be thrown out from Dining Services, as well as various grocery stores and food banks. Students then turn this food into delicious and nutritious meals that are delivered to neighborhood homeless shelters, transitional living homes, and low-income families and senior citizens. The Campus Kitchen also runs a Culinary Job Training program to prepare adults looking for gainful employment for careers in the food service industry.
