BENTONVILLE — Northwest Arkansas Community College’s culinary department wants to reduce hunger in the region by converting food that otherwise would go to waste into nutritious meals.
Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food recently joined the Campus Kitchens Project, a national organization empowering student volunteers to fight hunger and food waste in their community.
Brightwater will use its five kitchens to transform food recovered from the college, farmers markets, restaurants and other venues into healthy meals for the community, said Lauren Peiser, a student adviser and adjunct instructor at Brightwater.
