The Dining Commons (DC) at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) hosted its second Thankful Food Festival a few days before Fall break and Thanksgiving on Nov. 18.
The DC was decorated with fall and Thanksgiving themed decorations. Students had the opportunity to write down something they were thankful for and place it on the wall for a chance to win a prize.
All the different stations at the DC joined in on the event. The TV screens displaying the menu had received a Thanksgiving themed background.
There was a variety of food students could choose from, including traditional Thanksgiving food served at the “Flame” station. The “Sweet Shop” station tempted students with desserts such as pumpkin pie and an assortment of cookies.
Students who donated three items of non-perishable food items for the Basic Needs pantry were able to eat for free.
