Teach, Reach, Feed, Lead: First in Michigan

Detroit Mercy’s Campus Kitchen program is the first Campus Kitchen in the State of Michigan. The idea for this Campus Kitchen came from Sodexo Retail Manager Kari Haddrill and Sodexo continues to provide critical, ongoing support. We are a part of a national program: The Campus Kitchens Project.

According to the national website, The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP), "is an emerging leader in community service for students and resourceful anti-hunger programs."

What we do is kind of a no-brainer. We know there are people in every community who need nourishing meals. And, we know that every college campus has unserved food in its dining halls and brilliant students in its classrooms. So we put them all together.

    Mission Statement

    Detroit Mercy Campus Kitchen is a nonprofit social enterprise based in Detroit with a mission to develop compassionate and just student leaders who engage our community to combat hunger.

    Campus Kitchen assures that quality food that would otherwise be wasted gets to people in the community who need it.

    We focus our efforts on serving marginal populations including women seeking relief from domestic violence and people recovering from addictions. We reach them through strategic partnerships with organizations who serve these populations.
