Twenty turkeys, 100 pounds of mashed potatoes, 50 pounds of sweet potatoes, 80 pounds of stuffing and 25 pounds of assorted vegetables … and, of course, gravy – more than 5 gallons of it!
Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts program students and volunteers prepared about 200 Thanksgiving dinners for Community Action Southold Town’s (CAST) Greenport food pantry in what has become an annual and celebratory undertaking for the college’s culinary program and its students, faculty and CAST volunteers.
This year’s happy undertaking marks the eleventh year that dozens of the college’s culinary students and faculty will happily volunteer their culinary expertise to execute the holiday cooking with military-like precision for neighbors in the community.
