Soul Food Luncheon is Feb. 21 in Battle Creek

Kellogg Community College’s popular Soul Food Luncheon returns to campus Tuesday, Feb. 21.

This year’s luncheon will start at 11 a.m. in the Binda Performing Arts Center lobby, on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $5 for students and $10 for the general public.

The Soul Food Luncheon is an annual Black History Month event at KCC featuring a lunch of traditional African American dishes. This year’s menu includes items prepared by local eateries, including:

  • Pulled pork and chicken from O.T.’s Up N Smoke BBQ
  • Sweet potatoes, mac and cheese and greens by Taste-A-Licious Catering

Beverages and cornbread will be provided by KCC’s Bruin Bistro.

The Soul Food Luncheon event started at KCC several years ago as a way for then-Vice President of Student Services L. Marshall Washington to share his family’s recipes with the College and the public. The event grew to involve other KCC employees and their family recipes.
