The Student Senate will host a Thanksgiving dinner Wednesday, Nov. 27, for the campus community in the City College cafeteria from 3:30–5 p.m.

Stacy Bernstein, who works in the High-Tech Center on campus, decided to create a day for students to come together and have a Thanksgiving meal.

“Everyone needs to have that feeling of being important, and that meal—I don’t know— it’s just that community feeling,” said Bernstein. “I just thought it was important to do.”

Bernstein and her husband, Sol Waldorf-Sifuentes, who works as a senior IT technician on campus, started asking people about the possibility of hosting a Thanksgiving meal.  

“Talking to a lot of the SCC members, they said, ‘Sounds like a great idea. Let me know how we can help out,’” said Waldorf-Sifuentes.

Bernstein, who has worked at food kitchens such as Loaves and Fishes, really values food and the importance of a meal.

“If anybody needed a meal, there was no hesitation. I went and either cooked it for them, or I took them the supplies they needed,” Bernstein said. “That’s just how I always was. When my sister was sick, I’d go to her house, and I’d cook matzo ball soup for her.”

Bernstein found that as she spoke with students about Thanksgiving that there was a need for a community meal on campus.

“I talk to my students and so many people are alone. A lot of families don’t have the money,” said Bernstein. “I just saw that people just need to feel like they belong to something.”

Once Waldorf-Sifuentes got the word out about the event, he found that more and more people were offering to help and donate.

“It just kept growing,” Waldorf-Sifuentes said. “The snowball kept getting bigger and bigger, and once we got the Student Senate involved, it was more of handing it off to them.”

The Student Senate is now hosting the dinner, but Bernstein and Waldorf-Sifuentes are still very much involved.

The two have found that people of the City College community have been very helpful and generous with both their time in volunteering as well as bringing food to the event.  

“People are getting excited and saying we should do another one for Christmas,” Waldorf-Sifuentes said.

The two of them shared a laugh.

“Wait a minute—let’s get through this one first,” Waldorf-Sifuentes said.
