NCC Gives Back During Annual Luncheon

On Sunday, November 21st, the Cornerstone Church in Norwalk held their 22nd Annual Community Thanksgiving Luncheon. The event saw 450 bags, over 800 meals in total, distributed to local members of the community.

The free bags contained Thanksgiving meals catered in part by the NCC Culinary Arts Department which roasted and carved 20, 20 pound turkeys as well as 16 gallons of pan gravy. NCC Nursing students were also part of the over 100 total volunteers (including Senator Blumenthal, Senator Duff, and Mayor Rilling) who helped distribute the dinners to the community! In addition to the Thanksgiving meals, over 100 mittens and hats were distributed by community donors to members in need.

Started in 1999, the annual Thanksgiving luncheon provides, prepares, and serves free meals with help provided solely by volunteers and donations. It brings people of diverse backgrounds together to celebrate and give thanks to our community.
