The 14th year of Turkeypalooza was the biggest yet! During this annual tradition, Campus Kitchen prepares scratch made turkey dinners for our community partners in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. This past year, CKWFU used both local turkeys and sweet potatoes as well as fresh produce to craft a seasonal menu that featured a roasted fall vegetable stuffing, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin cookies.
In 2018 nearly 100 student, faculty, and staff volunteers participated. This included over 24 hours of cooking shifts and daily deliveries to cook and serve 400 meals across Winston-Salem. This year, Turkeypalooza donated 100 meals to Samaritan Ministries and 30 meals to Veterans Helping Veterans. Turkeypalooza relies on generous donations from the Wake Forest campus community. CKWFU is grateful to all who gave to make this wonderful event possible.
