Summer Volunteers Needed At MSU Campus Kitchen

Posted: Updated:
MANKATO, Minn. -

A Mankato program aimed at curbing hunger in the area is in need itself.

Usually student volunteers lead the way at MSU Mankato's "Campus Kitchen," but the program is short on volunteers after students leave campus for the summer.

Campus Kitchen uses leftover food from area restaurants and campus food services, and delivers that food to people in need.

Student Leadership Team Leader Dillon Petrowitz says, "The need is always there, we are always looking for volunteers, year round, regardless of summer, fall, winter, spring, it doesn't matter the season, it doesn't matter when schools in are not the need is there and we need volunteers."

Campus Kitchen feeds over 100 people each week.If you would like to help with the project, you can call MSU Community Engagement at 507–389–6076.

They're looking for folks who can pack meals on Mondays or Tuesdays, or help pick up food donations on Fridays.
