The beginning of Campus Kitchen

2010 - 2011

June 16th, 2010, Auburn University submitted its paperwork to the national office, laying the groundwork for what would become The Campus Kitchens at Auburn University (CKAU). On March 1st, 2011, the organization was officially established with a signed contract, and operations began by serving 70 meals per week at the food pantry of Auburn United Methodist Church. These early efforts marked the beginning of CKAU's commitment to reducing food waste and fighting hunger in the East Central Alabama community.
