Georgian students prepare holiday meal for the homeless
Dec. 17, 2021
Students, staff and faculty across Georgian love to give back to the community – and generosity is exceptionally high during the holiday season.
Close to 40 second-year culinary students were busy prepping in the labs at the Barrie Campus this week, getting ready to serve a special holiday lunch – turkey with all the fixings – to 200 clients of the David Busby Centre.
In collaboration with various community partners and as part of their coursework, Georgian students have been preparing and serving the lunch for 17 years.
The chefs-in-training have the chance to hone their skills in the kitchen while making a meaningful difference during a time that can be difficult for many.
“This event brings the whole community together,” says Georgian Chef Phil Leach. “All our culinary students play a part. Year after year we can always count on faculty and staff to volunteer and come help out too.”
