A new trailer is allowing the University of Georgia’s Campus Kitchen to feed more local residents while giving student volunteers additional face-to-face contact with those they serve. The program, run out of the Office of Service-Learning, primarily serves food insecure families in the local area, providing food and resources while promoting healthy living. “The trailer brings this food truck, festive atmosphere,” said Campus Kitchen Coordinator Andie Bisceglia. “It makes an inviting space for people to come to neighborhood events, get resources and be able to feed their family.”
“Campus Kitchen is really trying to give back and pour back into the community that the university is a part of,” Patrick Howard, a board member of Family Connection-Communities in Schools of Athens, said. “They’re not just existing in the community, but they’re an active part of it.”
