Vol State’s annual Soul Food Luncheon will be Wednesday, Feb. 7th, 12:45 p.m., in the Mary Cole Nichols Dining Room in the Wood Campus Center.

Everyone in the campus community is welcome.

There will be a dramatic reading at the luncheon, and Dr. Kenny Yarbrough, manager of diversity and inclusion, will be giving an address.

The event is sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to kick off Black History Month.

“People bond around food and most Southern people like soul food. This luncheon highlights the origin of soul food, and how it came to be,” according to Yarborough.

The lunch promotes an understanding of culture and unity around something most people appreciate, good food, according to Yarborough.

“By highlighting our similarities, we can learn to appreciate our differences,” according to Yarborough.
