Meet our summer interns!

We are excited to welcome 3 summer interns this summer to the CK team!  These interns ensure that CK can remain operational over the summer when our volunteer numbers are really low (wink wink: PLEASE volunteer!)  This year's interns are Emily Bachman, Anna Donze, and Brad Shugoll. Below, read more about them and you won't be able to resist volunteering with them this summer!

Emily is a rising senior interested in Environmental Studies, Food, and the Environment.  Emily has previously worked on food assessment with Aramark on campus and will serve as a SPARC leader in the fall.  This summer she will be overseeing our produce redistribution project in collaboration with the Fresh Market.  She will also be working on food waste and assessment and developing a more efficient food tracking system.

Anna (who is on the right) is a rising senior and an Anthropology major and Environmental Studies minor.  She has previously served as an intern for the Office of Sustainability and Office Manager for Campus Kitchen.  She is also the only returning intern having served as the Food Resourcing intern last summer.  This summer she will oversee cooking shifts and volunteer coordinating.

Brad is a rising senior and a Biophysics major.  Brad will be serving as one of two Student Coordinators for CKWFU for the second year in a row this coming year.  He is committed to service across campus and will serve as the TPE for the Service Theme House next year and as a leader for the SPARC program.  This summer he will be doing research for the Physics Department while also overseeing all delivery shifts.

We watched him dash by the table at Hit the Bricks this year. We almost didn't see him, it was that fast. The bag of bricks on his back didn't even seem to affect him. I felt proud to be a part of the CK hit the Bricks team. my heart swelled with pride.
I always said that Chris Iskander has the body of an olympian, said Carrie.
and he runs for Campus Kitchen WFU.

CONGRATS CKwfu for 343 laps!!!!!

I was only able to be there at the end of the day but I want to thank everyone who came out and ran, walked or just supported the team!

So, this year VSC and CK WFU teamed up to paint a desk at the annual desk-painting-on-the-mag-quad. Groups and organizations across campus get together every spring to paint a desk for a special kid from Old Town Elementary school. The groups are in charge of getting a desk and then painting in any way that makes their kid happy.
Luckily this year the weather was awesome!
Here are some pics. Enjoy.

P.S>>>> keep an eye out for FOOD WEEK, coming up soon.

It's that time of year again! Time for us to give thanks by preparing and serving full turkey dinners to all of our clients (plus a few new ones). We are still accepting turkey sponsorships ($32 a bird) to support our purchase of local, free-range, happy turkeys.

Shifts start tonight (Monday the 15th) and run through next Monday evening. We will be serving The Children's Home (6 cottages! about 120 kids), Azalea Terrace Senior Apartments, AIDS Care services (2 groups homes), and Prodigals Community. If you would like to volunteer, please email or call 758-3705.

And what, your might ask, are we serving (besides the obvious)? This week's menu is:

Turkey (obvi)
Homemade stuffing
Cranberry Sauce
Homemade Pumpkin Cookies
Green Bean Casserole
Scalloped Potatoes

Yummmmm. We guarantee it is (almost) as fun and "filling" to prepare these meals as to eat them, come out volunteer! Also, if you don't have time for a cooking or delivery shift, we still really need volunteers for our M-F Fresh Market Produce Rescue shifts from 4-6pm! Just show up in Benson 506 at 4pm and join a shift!
