“The main goal is to feed the community,” said Jaylen Daniels, President of Student Senate, the government arm of the HCC student body. “This can be their Thanksgiving meal if they aren’t getting one elsewhere.”
With a population of over 6,800 students, HCC serves an eleven-town region spanning Fairfield and New Haven counties. Many students are low-to-moderate income, and others struggle with poverty and food insecurity.
“This meal is a highlight for me,” said Alexxa Lynn, a first semester student. “I don’t have many plans for Thanksgiving, this is a nice treat.”
“We’re thankful for our students and want to ensure their success,” said Kim McGinnis, Dean of Student Services. “This is one way we can show our appreciation.”
