On Wednesday, November 25th, nearly 40 students and faculty chefs from the Culinary Arts program at Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) will come together to help spread a little holiday cheer while showcasing their impressive skills learned at Suffolk. "Our college and students enjoy giving back to our community," shared Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

In an effort to combine the students' and the school's passion for food with the chance to brighten the holidays for members of the local community, the chefs will create approximately 120 meals, which will be donated to long-term patients and home-bound seniors of the Dominican Sisters of Hampton Bays. "We celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking our favorite foods, being with the ones we love and giving thanks for everything we have," noted Dr. McKay.

At 9 a.m., the students and faculty will meet at the SCCC Culinary Arts & Hospitality Center in Riverhead to begin their special Turkey Day feast. Their task, which the group always seamlessly accomplishes, will be to transform a dozen, 20 pound turkeys; 100 pounds of mashed potatoes; 50 pounds of sweet potatoes; 80 pounds of stuffing; 25 pounds of assorted vegetables; 36 apple and pumpkin pies; and 5 gallons of gravy into a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
