Campus Kitchen

Our son is nonverbal, but by his body language, we gather that he is proud, happy, he feels accepted and important, and that he belongs to an extended family – Rimland. Rimland nurtures his self-esteem, structures his daily activities, and installs goals. He used to be crabby, but now we often see him smile.

Community Spotlight: In the Kitchen with Rimland

Rimland clients have begun monthly visits to the Campus Kitchen at Northwestern University to help prepare peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for children in the Evanston community who don’t have lunch at their schools. A national leader in creating community service opportunities for students, Campus Kitchen partners with Northwestern and other universities and high schools to share on-campus kitchen space, to recover food from cafeterias, and to engage volunteers who prepare and deliver food to the community. The hour-long visits to Campus Kitchen enable Rimland clients to engage and develop skills while making meaningful contributions to the community. Plus, who doesn’t love PB&J?
