NAIT Students to Prepare Thanksgiving Meals for Edmonton’s Less Fortunate


EDMONTON — Students of the Merchandising and Culinary Arts and Professional Meat Cutting programs at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) will prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal for approximately 1,600 of Edmonton’s less fortunate on Oct. 6 and 7 at the Boyle Street Community Services Drop-in Centre.

The participating students belong to NAIT’s Club Culinaire — a student-organized volunteer group that has been hosting Thanksgiving feasts to help the city’s underprivileged residents for the past 30 years. The initiative is a chance for culinary students to apply their skills and to give back to their community.

This year’s meal will include 65 turkeys, 400 lbs of vegetables, 400 lbs of potatoes and 100 litres of gravy — supplied by the Edmonton Food Bank and Boyle Street Community Services.
