Even as many are in full Halloween mode this week, organizers of the big community Thanksgiving Day Buffet are getting ready for the holiday that is exactly one month away.

The College of St. Scholastica has hosted the dinner for 33 years.

“It’s just a great opportunity for us as a college with the values we have through the Benedictine Sisters to serve our community and to provide something for our community in a very meaningful way,” St. Scholastica Vice President for College Advancement Chris Mueller said.

However, with supply chain issues and food costs, there will be a menu change this year.

“Unfortunately, no turkey available. So we’re going to a ham dinner,” organizer Monica Hendrickson said. “So we’re just going to roll with the punches, still be able to feed everyone, just a different menu.”

Hendrickson said the greatest need right now is donations. They also need 600 volunteers to lend a hand.

Meals are served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the DECC or can be delivered if people sign up by Nov. 18.
