The Loaded Ladle uses food to build a greater sense of community by bringing students together in food servings, participatory workshops, events, and open discussions. In actively creating an alternative to the food system currently in place, the Loaded Ladle empowers students and creates opportunities for hands-on, popular education initiatives. The Loaded Ladle gives students the option to determine what food they eat and how it is produced.
