There are many local places where students can get meals on Thanksgiving.

Many NCF students are hitting the road and heading home for Thanksgiving, but for some, it is not possible to get back to their families for the holiday. For those who will stay on campus this Thanksgiving, there are many options in the community where students can get a holiday meal for free or for a very low price.

Crager’s Family Diner, a homey Sarasota restaurant, is offering a whole turkey dinner for $10.99 or prime rib of beef for $14.99. Both will be served with homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce, real mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, cut green beans and homemade rolls or cornbread.

Columbia Restaurant on St. Armand’s Circle will offer a three-course turkey dinner for $21.95 per person. Similarly, Harry’s Continental Kitchens is offering a three-course turkey diner for $33.95, $27.95 for just an entree, and $45.95 for the meal along with wine pairings.

Students and members of the New College community can also volunteer on Thanksgiving. Sarasota-Manatee Meals on Wheels is always looking for people to help provide meals to the community.

Those interested in volunteering this season, or any other time, can look for avenues to donate food and other products such as toiletries.
