Students hold containers full of food during the Soul Food Luncheon.

Kellogg Community College’s popular Soul Food Luncheon returns to campus Tuesday, Feb. 20.

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 in the adjacent Kellogg Room the day of the event 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 traditional fried chicken, ribs, pound cake and peach cobbler prepared by KCC employees, with sweet potatoes and collard greens provided by Battle Creek’s Taste-A-Licious Catering.

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.
