Students to distribute 125 Thanksgiving meals

TRAVERSE CITY — Northwestern Michigan College business students will distribute 125 Thanksgiving meals to fellow students and community families on Monday, Nov. 22. This is the outcome of the eighth annual Food For Thought project, which teaches students how to professionally communicate through experiential learning. Each student wrote a professional letter to an organization or business, requesting a monetary or item donation to help meet a goal of feeding 125 families.

Distribution will take place at two locations:

  • 2–4 p.m. at NMC's Physical Education Building/Maple Parking Lot, 1701 E. Front St, Traverse City. This location is for the distribution of 75+ meals to NMC students.
  • 5:30–7:30 p.m. at Bill Marsh, 1621 S Garfield Ave., Traverse City. This location is for the distribution of 50 meals to local families identified by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan.
