Student volunteers at the Campus Kitchen at Kent State
University prepare meals for people in the community. This
year, the Campus Kitchen at Kent State will provide holiday
meals and groceries to its community clients.

The Campus Kitchen at Kent State University announces its Turkeypalooza event, which is held by Campus Kitchens across the country to ensure that all families have a Thanksgiving dinner. This Thanksgiving season, the Campus Kitchen at Kent State will provide holiday meals and groceries to its regular clients in the community, including those served by Kent Social Services and the Center of Hope. Because this is a huge undertaking, the Campus Kitchen at Kent State needs your help to make it happen.

From Monday, Nov. 18, to Friday, Nov. 22, the Campus Kitchen will celebrate “Take Your Turkey to Work Day!” The Campus Kitchen requests Kent State faculty and staff members to bring a turkey to work during the week of Nov. 18, so that the Campus Kitchen at Kent State can prepare and share Thanksgiving blessings with those less fortunate in the community. 

You can bring your turkey to the Campus Kitchen, located at the Beall Hall loading dock, between the hours of 6:30-8:30 a.m. Alternatively, you can arrange for a volunteer to pick up your turkey at your office during the week. Volunteers will also accept financial donations (such as gift cards) to purchase turkeys or other food items.

For more information about Turkeypalooza or to arrange for a pick-up for “Take Your Turkey to Work Day,” contact Alexandra James, Campus Kitchen event coordinator, at ajames14@kent.edu or 440-376-0194.
