Campus Kitchen at Austin Peay (CKAPSU)
Campus Kitchen at Austin Peay State University (CKAPSU) empowers students to combat hunger in our community. CKAPSU reduces local food waste by recovering foodfrom establishments like grocery stores and farmers markets to create balanced meals to those struggling with food insecurity. CKAPSU is an affiliate of the national The Campus Kitchens Project (CKP).
Food Recovery: Recovering unused, quality food from local establishments such as farmers markets and grovery stores, as well as collecting individual donations. The federal Good Samaritan Act for Food Donations protects schools and food donors.
Cooking & Food Service: Using kitchen space at APSU and Clarksville Salvation Army, students repurpose food donations and prepare balanced meals for those in need.
Empowerment & Education: Our volunteers work together to empower others with skills and knowledge they need to make healthier living and eating choices.
