El Paso Community College (EPCC) Culinary Arts program and its Culinary Veterans Club gave back to area veterans by hosting a Thanksgiving Luncheon.
Veterans were served traditional holiday foods including turkey, cornbread stuffing, candied yams and an assortment of pies and deserts.
This is one of many events EPCC Culinary Arts hosts during the year.
“The Culinary Veterans Club is always looking for ways to support the EPCC Culinary Arts program and the community,” William Graham, Culinary Arts Veterans Club member said.
Officials with EPCC added, “This is just one way EPCC serves Veteran and military related students. The EPCC Veteran Resource Center assists students with counseling, registration and student life as they transition out the military.”
EPCC Culinary Arts partnered with many food service providers as co-sponsors.
The Thanksgiving so-sponsors include El Super!, Sarah Farms Dairy, Quality, SYSCO, Walmart, Sam’s and Costco.
The event was held at the One-Stop Veterans Center at 9565 Diana Drive on November 17, 2017.
