Various Volunteer and Food Pantry Shifts


Flashes Fighting Hunger, formerly known as The Campus Kitchen, runs on donated food, shared kitchen space, and student volunteers who want to make a difference! By recovering food that otherwise would go to waste, the kitchen is able to prepare 300 nutritious meals each week for those struggling with food insecurity. Food is delivered to Kent Social Services, Center of Hope, Upper Room Ministries and Springtime of Hope. The Campus Kitchen engages with the community every Saturday at the Haymakers Farmers’ Market, as well as partners with the Nutrition Outreach program at Kent to provide nutrition education to children, youth, and senior adults.
