Edible Campus and Carolina Cupboard were created because too many students don’t have access to healthy, affordable, food resources on campus. In addition, making healthy meals on a budget can pose a problem to college students.
That’s why Edible Campus, APPLES Service Learning, and Carolina Cupboard teamed up to create a cookbook that incorporates foods from Edible Campus gardens and the Carolina Cupboard food pantry. Both Edible Campus and Carolina Cupboard provide healthy, free foods, that when combined, create delicious and nutritious dishes. When compiling these recipes, the collaborators kept in mind most people want something quick and easy to make on busy weeknights, and these meals do a good job of satisfying the needs of college students and beginner cooks alike.
We hope you like it as much as we do, and happy cooking!
