University of Houston Dining Services partnered with Campus Kitchens to serve residents at New Hope for Housing facilities.
Managers from the UH Dining team prepped and served lunch alongside students from Campus Kitchens the last two Saturdays in April. The meals were prepared from food recovered from on-campus dining halls throughout the week.
“It is special to not only work alongside my team, but also these students who are making a difference in the Houston community,” said Nick Mendez, resident district manager. “We look forward to continuing this partnership in the years to come.”
Campus Kitchens is a student organization through the Bonners Leadership program. Students recover leftover dishes from on-campus dining halls five days a week. Over 10,000 pounds has been recovered this academic year.
