Honour society to share seasonal meal

The Windsor chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honour Society of Nursing will host a Boxing Day dinner on Dec. 26 at Craft Heads Brewing Company, 89 University Ave. W.

The event is open to anyone, say organizers: students without families, newly relocated residents, those lacking the financial resources to cook a holiday meal, or those who would like to share a meal with others.

“Our goal is to help decrease the food insecurity and social isolation experienced by community members within our city around the holidays,” says Donna Manlongat, co-chair of the chapter social events committee and an instructor in the Faculty of Nursing.

Sponsored by Sigma Theta Tau International, Craft Heads, and 30mL Coffee Co., the meal will run 1 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26. Volunteers will also distribute some non-perishable food items, toiletries, hats, mittens, and socks to those who may benefit, says Manlongat.
