Soul Food Dinner and DiscussionThe 2012 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is set to feature the Soul Food Unity Dinner and Discussion as part of this year’s events at Ferris State University.

This year’s dinner will be held in the Westview Dining Center in the Rankin Student Center on Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. The Soul Food Unity Dinner and Discussion is open to the public. Regular dining center costs apply for entry into the facility and participation in the activity. For those who do not have a meal plan, the MLK Planning Committee plans to offer opportunities to participate in this event free of charge. People who are interested can collect at least three activity stamps from attending three MLK Celebration events, prior to the dinner, to earn free admission.

“The Soul Food Unity Dinner and Discussion is a learning opportunity for our campus community to celebrate, educate and engage on issues of our time,” said Michael Wade, assistant director of the Office of Multicultural Student Services.

Participants of the activity are encouraged to sit with someone they do not know to strengthen unity throughout the dinner.

At the dinner, there will be a raffle giveaway for all participants.
