An Introduction to Denny Tower Meals

The anxiety and excitement was building for the night—the night of the infamous Denney Tower dinner. This was my first Denny meal of many, as the coordinator of these events for the semester. For a quick synopsis, the Denney Tower dinner is a meal served to the residents of a senior living community of the Athens Housing Authority called Denney Tower. This occurs about once a month on a given Sunday evening. With donated food from various local grocery stores, farmers markets, and UGArden, this meal is made possible. With Campus Kitchen’s intent to eliminate food waste, hunger, and senior isolation, this dinner functions to be a small but effective event.

The night was as planned:

  • 3:00 p.m. pick up equipment for dinner
