Bloomfield College Community Hosted Two Special Thanksgiving Meals

On Thursday, November 21, Bloomfield College hosted two special Thanksgiving dinners on its campus.

An all-student Thanksgiving dinner was held in the Dining Hall. Faculty and staff, alongside President Marcheta P. Evans, Ph.D. and William H. Turner, Board Chair, assisted Gourmet Dining in serving the meal. They took orders, plated the food, delivered it to the tables, and refilled drink orders, all with smiles on their faces.

Over 300 students were served salad, oven roasted turkey, cranberry glazed ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, homemade corn bread, and dessert.

Gourmet Dining Services, which has served the College for almost 20 years, had always planned on hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for students; but while meeting with Associate Professor, Dr. Laura Hill, Michael St. Blancard, Director of Dining Services, recognized her enthusiasm to help and opened the volunteer opportunity up to the entire campus community. 

“I can’t say strongly enough how much I believe in positive programming for our students - events that excite them to want to participate more, and in bringing pride to this community,” said St. Blancard. “This was an event that not only showcased our students, but shined a great light on the strength and dedication of Bloomfield College’s faculty and staff. It was a great source of pride to work beside them that evening, and witness such passionate service and support to the students.”

That same evening, an International students' (ITPS) Thanksgiving dinner was hosted by President Evans and Peter Jeong, Vice President for Global Programs and Professional Studies, in Westminster Hall, Room 110. Also catered by Gourmet Dining, the evening consisted of a similar menu and a number of festive performances that showcased the visiting students’ heritage and culture. Over 15 countries were represented in the over 100 guests. A true coming-together-moment came when Bloomfield College students showed the visiting students how to do the Bloomfield Shuffle, the College’s signature dance.
