Suffolk Culinary Students Partner With Community Action Southold Town, Prepare Thanksgiving Dinners for East End Families

Thanksgiving Cooking

 A Thanksgiving Tradition: Suffolk County Community College Culinary students prepare Thanksgiving meals for needy families. 

Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts program students will prepare about 200 dinners for Community Action Southold Town’s (CAST) Greenport food pantry in what has become an annual and happy undertaking for the college’s culinary program and its students.

This is the first year Suffolk’s Culinary program has worked with CAST, a not-for-profit that has worked in Southold Town since 1965  to help low-income residents meet basic needs in the areas of nutrition, employment, energy, and education. CAST exists as a safety net for Southold Town families from Laurel to Orient Point, including Fisher’s Island. The majority of CAST’s funding comes from the generosity of the community.

This marks the ninth year Suffolk County Community College students and faculty have happily volunteered their culinary expertise to support the holiday cooking.

The dinner preparation will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts & Hospitality Center, 20 East Main St., Riverhead, NY 11901. Cooking and packaging the meals will run through to 12 noon.

“We celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking and sharing our favorite foods, being with the ones we love and giving thanks for all that we have. Our college and students, faculty and staff enjoy giving back to our community,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

About 40 students and faculty chefs from the college’s culinary program will prepare the meal whose ingredients are provided by CAST —  more than 20 turkeys; 100 pounds of mashed potatoes; 50 pounds of sweet potatoes; 80 pounds of stuffing; 25 pounds of assorted vegetables and 20 each of apple and pumpkin pies. And, of course, gravy – more than 5 gallons of it!

The Clinton Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, 614 Third Street, Greenport is working in collaboration with CAST for people who want to gather and eat their hot turkey dinner in fellowship with their neighbors or pick up a meal to take home. The church will distribute meals on Wednesday Nov 22 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Suffolk’s First-Ever Student Radio Station Will Live-Stream 24-7, Launch 11-15 at 11:15!

scccir-logoPlaying “your fresh new variety of hits from yesterday and today,” Suffolk County Community College’s first-ever radio station will begin streaming live on Wednesday November 15 at 11:15 a.m. when College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay throws the switch to make the station live.

The new station was constructed over the summer adjacent to the college’s radio and television production studios. Programming will be pre-recorded by students and streamed 24 hours per day at scccir.com.

“This is a unique opportunity that provides our radio and television production students the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art technology that is incorporated into our curriculum,” McKay said. “Our faculty, staff and especially our students worked very hard over the summer and through the first half of the semester turning what started out as a storage room and a dream into a fully functional, live internet radio station,” McKay added. “This dream has finally become a reality.”

“Accessibility is the key to our station,” said Alan Bernstein, assistant academic chair and professor of radio and television production. “The greatest aspect of this new station is that we are here to stay.  We will be on the web, 24/7, 365 days a year, from this point forward.  So settle back and enjoy us.”

Suffolk’s pioneering  Radio- TV students who have been instrumental in the launch of the college’s first-ever radio station.

Alumni and friends, please consider a contribution to one of the following funds:

Ron Orlando Memorial Scholarship  – Help us endow this educational scholarship with an additional $6,000 in donations from alumni and friends!

Alan Bernstein Remote Television Production Scholarship – Help us endow this new educational scholarship.
