Campus Kitchen Busily Prepares Thanksgiving Meals for Community

November 23, 2004

Nearly 100 students, faculty, staff and community volunteers involved with the Campus Kitchen at Northwestern University will prepare and deliver meals to low-income seniors, underserved families and children during “Turkeypalooza” this week.

Food will be prepared from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday (Nov. 22), Tuesday (Nov. 23) and Wednesday (Nov. 24), and delivered between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 25).

Thanksgiving meals will include turkey or ham, garlic mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn bread, mixed vegetables, bread rolls, and either pumpkin or apple pie.

Campus Kitchen volunteers also are making holiday greeting cards and “Wishbone” gift baskets containing items (such as warm clothing, space heaters, jackets, gloves, etc.) to aid needy clients during the winter months ahead.

Instead of receiving prepared meals, Campus Kitchen clients have the option of getting groceries so they can prepare their Thanksgiving meals themselves.

Food or monetary donations are welcome.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Scott Parrish, Campus Kitchen supervisor, at  (847) 491-6925 or sparrish@campuskitchens.org.
