ALTOONA Pa. — The Penn State Cooking Classic is back for another installment.

Cooking Classic programs begin at 7 p.m. ET and include:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 19 - “Sweet Southern Comfort”

In addition to bringing together Penn State alumni, the webinars raise awareness of the food insecurity experiences of students across Penn State. Attendees and those not able to participate can support students by making a gift to one of the Penn State food pantries. Every $5 provides 20 or more meals or may be used to help stock shelves with other items such as toiletries or paper products. To learn more about making a donation, visit the Cooking Classic Let's Grow State site.
