We packed a lot into this short week! In addition to our Days of Service, we held our regular weekly service operations: Backpacks for Kids, as well as Campus Kitchens Meal Prep and Delivery. In partnership with @troyudining, we recovered more than 130 pounds of food this week left over from events on campus. Today we we able to deliver these meals to multiple community partners, including our friends at the Troy Nutrition Center! It was so good to see their smiling faces again.

We sure are glad 🍽 Campus Kitchens is back! 🎉

Swing on by the library on Monday to grab your bag of hydroponic lettuce and check out the library’s new Fork Farm! 👀 🥬

This is a new partnership between the library and the Office of Civic Engagement that will support local campus and community food insecurity initiatives going forward. It’s been great fun to be a part of setting up the farm and growing the first round of veggies.

Bags of fresh hydroponic lettuce will be available for students while supplies last at the library on Monday, Aug. 23rd beginning at 10am.

Since Publix opened in Troy, they have been committed to supporting this local community. Today, we began picking up bread that will be redirected to people in need, rather than wasted. Thank you Publix of Troy for partnering with us to fight hunger and reduce food waste! • • • #troyuniversity #troyu #troy #troyuspirit #hungerfighters #campuskitchens #service #poverty #food #foodinsecurity #bread #letsgetthisbread
We made 200 meals today and could have kept going if we hadn’t run out of to-go boxes! Don’t worry, we put the rest in the freezer 🙂 It was fun to have Lauren Cochran’s class join us today and have Tiffany back working the book like old times 🤠
