A Recipe for Giving: Suffolk Culinary Celebrates 10th Year Creating Sumptuous Thanksgiving Dinners for Community

Thanksgiving 2017

Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts program students will prepare about 200 Thanksgiving dinners for Community Action Southold Town’s (CAST) Greenport food pantry and Clinton Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church in what has become an annual and celebratory undertaking for the college’s culinary program and its students and faculty.

This year’s happy undertaking marks the tenth year that more than three dozen of the college’s culinary students and faculty have happily volunteered their culinary expertise to execute the holiday cooking with military-like precision for neighbors in the community.

The dinner preparation will take place on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts & Hospitality Center, 20 East Main St., Riverhead, NY 11901. Meal packaging will begin at approximately 1 p.m.

“We celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking and sharing our favorite foods, being with the ones we love and giving thanks for all that we have. Our college and students, faculty and staff enjoy giving back to our community. A Happy Thanksgiving to all!” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

This is the second year Suffolk’s Culinary program has worked with CAST, a not-for-profit that has worked in Southold Town since 1965 to help low-income residents meet basic needs in the areas of nutrition, employment, energy, and education. CAST exists as a safety net for Southold Town families from Laurel to Orient Point, including Fisher’s Island. The majority of CAST’s funding comes from the generosity of the community.

Students and faculty chefs from the college’s culinary program will prepare and individually package sumptuous Thanksgiving meals whose ingredients are provided by CAST, including more than 20 turkeys; 100 pounds of mashed potatoes; 50 pounds of sweet potatoes; 80 pounds of stuffing; 25 pounds of assorted vegetables and 20 each of apple and pumpkin pies. And, of course, gravy – more than 5 gallons of it!

Info Session 2018Supervisor Romaine Announces Free Seminar for Prospective College Students

posted on

Farmingville, NY – On March 8, the Brookhaven Youth Bureau and Suffolk Community College will host a free seminar for parents and students who are interested in enrolling in college. Representatives from Suffolk Community College will discuss the college application process, financial aid opportunities, scholarship opportunities and the various programs and services the college offers to students. Much of the information provided can be used toward the overall college application process. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Brookhaven Town Hall, located at 1 Independence Hill in Farmingville.

“Suffolk County Community College offers hundreds of diverse programs,” said College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The College, New York State’s largest community college, provides a high-quality education at an affordable price that can lead students toward a four-year institution. The college also offers a host of grant and scholarship programs, easy transfer between SUNY institutions and a host of clubs and athletic opportunities. I urge students to learn more about all that Suffolk has to offer.”

Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “It is great seeing the Youth Bureau and Suffolk Community College continuing to work together to help both students and parents in Brookhaven Town. This seminar will help guide them through the college application process and also make them aware of the many opportunities that are available.”

Councilman Michael Loguercio ’80, who serves as the Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau, said, “The college application process includes many important family decisions, and this program will help educate both parents and children about that decision-making process. I want to thank Suffolk Community College and the Youth Bureau for the great programs and services they provide to Brookhaven’s youth.”

The seminar will last approximately an hour and a half. Each presenter will speak for approximately a half hour, and then take ten to fifteen minutes after their presentations to answer questions.

Participants are asked to register in advance with the Youth Bureau by Thursday, March 1 by calling 631-451-8011.
