Cultural club cooks food for the soul

Call it chicken soup for the Gannon soul.

A soul food dinner sponsored by Multi-Cultures United will take place 4 p.m. Friday in the piano lounge of Waldron Campus Center.

It is free for all to enjoy – a benefit for starving, cash-strapped students.

Chicken, cornbread, baked macaroni and cheese and greens are just a few of the mouth-watering dishes that will be served.

“I want to open people up to try new things and experience a different culture,” Christian Cameron, club president, said.

“Gannon is a community and we would like to share this with our community.”

But MCU is based on more than just a shared love of Paula Deen-style cooking among its members.

It promotes community service, holds fundraisers and occasionally takes trips.

Activities like this week’s soul food dinner represent the overall goal of the club — to foster knowledge of a variety of cultures in students through hands-on experience.

“I joined because I wanted to get involved with campus life and I liked what the club was all about,” Cameron said.

He also noted that being part of MCU has helped him to develop critical leadership skills. Given soul food’s African-American origins, the dinner is appropriately being held during Black History Month.
