The Campus Kitchen Leadership Team at Washington and Lee University presents its annual “Turkeypalooza” from Nov. 9-16.

The Campus Kitchen Leadership Team (CKLT) runs a variety of holiday-themed events during the month of Nov. The annual “Bring Your Turkey to Work Day” and the University Store’s food drive provide CKLT with enough food to deliver Thanksgiving meals across the county.

“Turkeypalooza is by far my favorite Campus Kitchen event,” said Maddie Simko ’19. “Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I love delivering meals to community members.”

“My hope is that this November, the W&L community is in a thankful mood and will sign up for Turkeypalooza shifts,” said Simko. “However, my real hope is that someone finds their passion with Campus Kitchen and becomes a regular volunteer.”

The mission of The Campus Kitchens Project is to use service as a way to strengthen bodies, empower minds and build communities. The Campus Kitchen at Washington and Lee combats hunger and promotes nutrition by recovering and reusing food that would otherwise go to waste into balanced meals for low-income members of the community in Rockbridge County. Volunteers also develop valuable relationships with clients.
