Gunn's Annual Turkey Feast

Nitay Gill,


Gunn’s annual Turkey Feast will be held on Thursday, Nov. 18th during lunch so we need to start recruiting food donations and volunteers. It is one of Gunn's more popular events where the students and staff feast on a delicious luncheon, (vegetarian bar included), build community spirit, and then donate the proceeds to a local charity.

In the past we have had over 60 volunteers assisting and another 100 who donate food and money. The volunteers work in conjunction with the Student Executive Council and Lisa Hall, our Student Activities Director. We plan to feed 1400 people in 50 minutes so come and help! Last year we donated over $1700 to the Ecumenical Hunger Program in East Palo Alto through this charitable event!

For families that are new to this event, here is how it all works. 
On the day of the Turkey Feast, each Gunn student and staff can purchase lunch and a drink by paying $5.00 or bringing 3 cans of food plus $1. Lunch for meat eaters will include turkey, dressing and gravy, salad, cranberry sauce, rolls and pie. Vegetarians will feast on a baked potato bar as well as salad, rolls and pie. Posters will be up around school to help students remember their “lunch money”. We hope you and your family can all be a part of this special day!

Here is what is needed:

1. 60 Turkeys, at least 14 lbs.
Donate cooked and carved turkeys--delivered by 9:30 on 11/18.
It can be cooked a day ahead, carved and refrigerated.
