UWGB is one of five schools to receive a $5,000 grant sponsored by Sodexo Foundation to start their own Campus Kitchen Project by fall 2014! UWGB’s students, staff, faculty, and community supporters worked hard to spread the word for the past 10 days via social media, local news coverage, press releases, and word-of-mouth.

The UW-Green Bay project generated interest and support throughout the state of Wisconsin.  This wide-spread support added to the project’s voting total.   State Senator Dave Hansen voted and even Tweeted about voting for UWGB and encouraging others to do the same.

This grant will be used to buy utensils, containers to deliver the food in, and the delivery itself. UWGB is going to be saving the cafeteria food that is not sold and donate it to the community. Each Campus Kitchen has a few things in common, including a mission to recycle food, provide meals, educate and engage with the community, and provide leadership opportunities for students.
