Annual Duluth Thanksgiving Buffet Brings Back On-Site Dining, But Turkey Shortage Forces Menu Change
The College of St. Scholastica and the DECC in Duluth are excited to announce that the annual Thanksgiving Day Buffet will once again be served at the DECC on Thursday, November 24 in the DECC Ballroom. Unlike the past two years when it was pick up or meal delivery only, individuals will be able to eat at the DECC like in years past.
The event is from 11 am-3 pm and the meal and parking are free! This is truly a community event with hundreds of volunteers loading food, prepping, cooking, and serving meals. This has also become a tradition for many families and will continue to be for years to come.
Please note there is a menu change this year, due to the shortage in the supply of turkeys available ham will be served instead. 2,000 pounds of it to be exact along with 2,000 pounds of potatoes that need to be peeled, cooked, and mashed! Plus don't forget the gravy, stuffing, vegetables, dinner roll, and cake for dessert.
