The everyday food resource for our generation

Spoon University is the everyday food resource for our generation, on a mission to make food make sense. On our site, you can find the simplest recipes, the most obvious hacks you can’t believe you didn’t know, and the best restaurants around campus that you haven’t found yet. For many of us, this is the first time we’re navigating our campuses or our kitchens on our own, and Spoon University is here to simplify and celebrate that.

Behind the scenes, we’re helping teach the next generation of journalists, marketers and event planners the best practices in digital media. We empower a network of thousands of contributors at hundreds of college campuses all over the world to write, photograph, create videos and throw events. Our program (called “Secret Sauce”) offers skills and training on how to be a leader, create incredible events and have your photos, videos and articles seen by millions. Our contributors get personalized analytics on what’s working and what’s not working, so they can learn and grow and launch into the real world ahead of the curve.

Get involved in this food movement by starting your own chapter on campus, joining an existing one or being a loyal fan. And hey, we’re also hiring, so you can make this thing your full-time job too.
