Campus Kitchen now cooking in new home



If demand arises, Billington-Just said they’ll do what they have to do to feed people. They’d have to add another packing shift.

For now, Billington-Just and Dahlvang said they’re operating on a three-year plan, and both said they expect Campus Kitchen to be housed at Crossroads for the foreseeable future.

In addition to rescuing food from the university dining service, the program also collects food from area restaurants such as Red Lobster, Chipotle and Caribou Coffee. And Billington-Just said they’re always looking for more restaurants to add to their collection site list.

They’re also looking for volunteers from the public to fill in over the current break, which runs from mid-December to mid-January. Call 389-6076 to inquire about volunteering.
