What We Do
The Campus Kitchen at William & Mary is about more than just providing meals. An important component of our mission is building community with those we serve. We provide educational programs for the children in two of the public housing neighborhoods that receive our meals. Our programs consist of "Fun at Five" and field trips. As always, we rely heavily on student volunteers to run successful programs, so please read below to find out how to get involved!

Fun at Five
Fun at Five is our after-school program for the children that takes place outside their own neighborhoods. William & Mary students spend time with the kids through sports, arts & crafts, and other activities! The kids range in age from pre-K to 8th grade. Fun at Five takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:00-6:15. On Wednesdays, we go to Dunning neighborhood and on Thursdays, we go to New Hope neighborhood. Transportation is provided.
Fun at Five volunteers should meet outside the Wesley House, which is at 526 Jamestown Rd across from PBK/Jamestown South. It is between Cary St and Indian Springs Rd right next to the Williamsburg United Methodist Church. We leave at 5:00 sharp so please be on time!

We take the children on three field trips each semester. Chaperones for field trips consist of Campus Kitchen exec board members and consistent Fun at Five volunteers. Some of our past field trips have been to the Virginia Aviation Museum, Maymont Nature Park, the Williamsburg fire station, a W&M baseball game, and Virginia Commonwealth University.
We are always open to ideas of nearby, low-cost places to go on field trips, so if you have any suggestions let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
