NKU on-campus food pantry, FUEL NKU, to host 4th annual Friendsgiving Celebration on Monday

Northern Kentucky University’s on-campus food pantry, FUEL NKU, will host its fourth annual Friendsgiving Celebration, inviting NKU students, faculty and staff for a community Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 22 from 6-8 p.m.in the James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union. Check-in begins at 5:30 p.m.

Since 2013, FUEL NKU has provided food and essentials to students in a compassionate, confidential and safe environment, and this remains true even when the university is closed for holidays.

With nearly 200 people expected to attend the Friendsgiving Celebration, community partners are joining FUEL NKU to host the feast on NKU’s campus. The Kroger Co. will contribute the turkey, while Busken Bakery will donate pumpkin pies.

Chartwells, NKU’s external food services partner, pitched in to cover an array of side items and necessary table-setting items such as side dishes, tableware and drinks. In addition to the food, The Care Closet at NKU will provide coats, hats, gloves, and scarves for students as well.

The Friendsgiving Celebration dinner is open to all NKU students, faculty and staff. There is no cost to attend the event, but attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable item to donate to FUEL NKU.
