Skagit Valley College students to brighten Thanksgiving for 30 families in need
Thanksgiving dinner will be much brighter for 30 local families this year, thanks to the Skagit Valley College C.H.E.F.’s Club (Culinary Hospitality Education Foundation) and Phi Theta Kappa.
Each family will receive a traditional holiday meal with all the trimmings, including a roasted turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, cranberries, corn, squash, veggie tray, sweet potatoes, rolls, and pumpkin pie. The students and volunteers will gather early on Thanksgiving morning to prepare and deliver a holiday dinner to each family’s home. The food and supplies needed for the meals were donated by SVC faculty, staff, and students.
“Preparing Thanksgiving baskets has been a wonderful Skagit Valley College tradition for 24 years,” said SVC Culinary Arts Department Chair Dani Cox. “Our students, chefs, and volunteers look forward to this opportunity each year to give back to the community.”
The C.H.E.F.’s Club encourages, promotes, and manages activities for students in SVC’s Culinary Arts program, and provides academic support to students who are preparing for a career in the culinary field. The Phi Theta Kappa Theta Upsilon chapter promotes scholarship, the development of leadership, and the cultivation of fellowship and service.
