Description

Every year Columbia Dining hosts a Thanksgiving feast for 1,000 students who do not go home for the holiday, but can still celebrate with their Columbia family. A traditional dinner of turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings is served family style in John Jay Dining Hall, where the menu includes vegan, vegetarian, halal and kosher options. This year, there was a special focus on community. Cards at each place setting outlined Columbia Community Principles of responsibility, integrity and acceptance of a diversity of opinion and also invited students to write down why they are thankful. For every card returned, the University donated money to two local soup kitchens. More: http://news.columbia.edu/oncampus/3571
