The St. Kate’s/CSJ Food Access Hub is a collaboration between the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJ) and St. Catherine University to address food insecurity, nutrition, and personal wellness needs within and beyond the St. Kate’s and CSJ communities. This project centers student leadership and is supported by staff from CSJ Young Adult Spirituality and Community Engagement, and St. Kate’s Center for Spirituality and Social Justice. The Food Access Hub encompasses the food shelf at 1890 Randolph Ave. and a network of community gardens, and supports several different sustainability initiatives on both campuses.

CSJ Community Gardens total 1,361 square feet and host a variety of vegetables and flowers. We also aggregate produce from the Highland Catholic Community Garden and Tacheny Farm, and receive donations from the St. Kate’s garden beds and other neighboring community members’ gardens. Since 2005, annual harvest totals have been on the rise. The majority of our harvest is donated to the St. Kate’s/CSJ Food Food Access Hub.
