November 17: Garlic Pasta and Cheesy Potato Bake

Project Goal:

Provide students with the opportunity and resources to learn virtually about food insecurity on campus, the value of nutrition, new cooking skills, and recipes; while simultaneously engaging with the University community by utilizing the provided resources to make nutritious meals. The long term goal is for all resources concerning food, groceries, and healthier eating being made more available and acknowledged to students, as well as solving concerns of those regarding food availability and security.


If you give a person a fish they eats for a day. If, instead, you teach a person to fish, they will eat for an eternity. At U Cook We Eat, we give people fish while teaching them how to fish.
