Penn State holds Cooking Classic across all campuses

Penn State’s first-ever university-wide Cooking Classic served up dishes of fun for participants and funds for campus food pantries.

A total of 522 people took part in the program which featured four virtual, hourlong presentations hosted by various Penn State colleges and campuses.

Penn State alumni learned about things like smoking meats, coffee, healthy foods, specialty chocolate and wine.

In addition to building the Penn State alumni community, the program helped raise awareness of food insecurity experienced by Penn State students.

Attendees were able to assist Lions Pantries across the Commonwealth.

A total of 111 doners gave more than $4,200 to university food pantries with $340 raised for Penn State Altoona’s Ivyside Eats program.
