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.

Thirteen from Suffolk County Community College to Receive SUNY Chancellor’s Award

Suffolk County Community College students will be recognized by State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor Nancy Zimpher according to Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay who said that 13 of his college’s students will be presented with The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence on April 5.

“These selected students,” said Dr. McKay, “are perfect examples of the core values of our college — engagement, academic excellence and service to others.”

The award, created in 1997, honors SUNY students who have demonstrated and been recognized for their integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, including leadership, campus involvement, athletics, career achievement, community service or creative and performing arts. Each awardee will be presented with a medallion and certificate from Chancellor Zimpher.

The 2017 Chancellor’s Awards for Student Excellence will take place on Wednesday, April 5th at 2 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany.

Each year, SUNY campus presidents establish a selection committee to review the accomplishments of exemplary students. Nominees are then forwarded to the Chancellor’s Office for a second round of review. Finalists are then recommended to the Chancellor to become recipients of the award.

Attracting More Women Into STEM: Suffolk’s Dr. Candice Foley Invited to International STEM Gender Conference in Berlin

Breaking The Gender Barrier in STEM

Suffolk County Community College Professor of Chemistry Dr. Candice Foley has been invited to attend the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Gender Equality Congress in Berlin, Germany on June 8 -9.  Foley is Suffolk’s National Science Foundation S-STEM Chair.

The STEM Gender Equality congress will be attended by policy makers, equality staff, the private sector, academic staff, government representatives and others for two days of thought-provoking addresses, high-level panel discussions, and in-depth case studies and discussions.

“Because there remains a persistent gender gap in college degrees in STEM, Suffolk’s presence at this International Gender Equality Conference will highlight the success of our vast network of collaborations within our college, SUNY, statewide and nationally for connecting underrepresented female STEM students to educational opportunities that prepare them to compete for the highest quality jobs of today and the future,” said Dr. Candice Foley, Professor of Chemistry and the College’s NSF S-STEM PI.   Foley explained that Suffolk County Community College is a crucial entry point enabling underrepresented women in STEM to bridge from the community college to the baccalaureate level, on to graduate school and into the STEM workforce.

“It is no secret that women are underrepresented in STEM fields,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “In 2014, nationally, only 29% of the bachelor’s degrees awarded to women were in science and engineering, compared with 40% for men, according to the National Student Clearinghouse,” McKay said. “Dr. Foley has been at the forefront of advancing our College’s STEM students and programs.”

Suffolk County Community College Board of Trustees Chair Theresa Sanders explained the college’s commitment to STEM programs and successes:  “Improving America’s STEM education has become a top priority across the nation. At Suff¬olk, approximately 1,500 students are currently enrolled in STEM majors and the College’s STEM program has been producing award winning students while providing summer research internships at internationally renowned facilities, including Brookhaven National Laboratory, NASA, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory among others,” Sanders said.
