You’re Invited: Soul Food CafePosted February 11th, 2011 by cws_mcqu
On Wednesday, February 23rd from 5:00pm to 8:00pm UHDS will host “Soul Food Cafe: A Journey through Culture and Cuisine” at McNary Dining Center. Soul Food Cafe celebrates Black History Month and is one of several “Journeys through Culture and Cuisine” that UHDS has hosted over the last few years. It will feature slow smoked Virginia ham, Southern Fried Chicken, Tofu Creole, Collard Greens, Fried Okra, Bananas Foster, and homemade New Orleans -Style Beignets.
Each of these cultural events is an outgrowth of our Diversity Initiative which is a multi-faceted approach to creating communities that are open, caring, and supportive of students from all cultures. As a department, our Diversity Initiative is aspirational. We know we have more work to do to create inclusive environments, but we are dedicated and committed to the journey and we ask the rest of the campus community to join us and support us as we travel on our journey.
Working with our campus partners brings great energy to these events and I appreciate everyone’s involvement. Come join us for at McNary Dining Center for Soul Food Café and mellow out to the blues of the Ty Curtis Band.
