The UW-Green Bay Black Student Union, along with the University’s American Intercultural Center, will host their annual Soul Food Dinner Saturday, Feb. 7 in the Phoenix Room of the University Union on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the program begins at 5:30.
The evening’s program will feature nationally renowned slam poet Dana Gilmore, along with other speakers and entertainers to help celebrate the festive event. Dinner menu items include fried chicken, catfish, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, candied yams, cornbread dressing and peach cobbler. The dishes have a true southern flavor and come from the Deep South kitchen of UW-Green Bay Diversity Director Justin Mallett’s family.
“The Soul Food Dinner is a time when we can all come together and share in the festivities of great food and camaraderie from all,” Mallett said. “A joyous occasion enjoyed by everyone, the Soul Food Dinner also will serve as the kick-off event to Black History Month at UW-Green Bay.”
Tickets for the Soul Food Dinner are $3 for students and children under age 12, and $6 for non-students. They can be purchased at the University Ticketing and Information Center in the University Union, or by calling (920) 465-2400.
