The campus community will meet on campus in Butz Hall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day to bake tasty treats, and later go to Victory House in Bethlehem to cook and serve dinner and dessert. Members of the campus community can participate by contacting service@cedarcrest.edu or ext. 3438.

The event includes a slide show highlighting the life of Dr. King, many of his favorite foods, and audio recordings of freedom-related songs and hymns. The meal is available for the typical cost of dinner in the dining hall.
