Culinary Vegetable Institute to host Thanksgiving dinner for soldiers

Melissa Topey • Nov 10, 2012 at 5:37 AM

The Chef's Garden and the owners, the Jones family, have cooked up dozens of turkeys the past six years to serve as part of a Thanksgiving feast at the Culinary Vegetable Institute for active duty military personnel and their guests.  

"We have friends who have sons in the military," said Barb Jones, of the Chef's Garden. "We felt like the rest of us cannot do enough to pay them back. They risk their lives, they leave their family. This is the least we can do."

Families of active-duty military personnel are invited again this year to attend the Thanksgiving dinner.

Reservations must be made by Nov. 20.
