Mac-n-cheese ruled the day as Wilmington College held its annual Soul Food Festival Wednesday evening. The event, which is part of the College’s Black History Month observance, offered plentiful helpings of pulled pork, greens, gumbo, baked beans, cornbread and, yes, everyone’s favorite, macaroni and cheese. Sophomore Cheyenne Baldwin picks a winner in selecting Donovan Hayes’ mac-n-cheese, which judges selected as the best from the nine recipes entered in the contest.
Students and guests packed the Kelly Center’s McCoy Room for Wilmington College’s annual Soul Food Jam Wednesday. Tempting aromas and tasty foods filled the event, which featured a judged mac-and-cheese cook-off. The event, overseen by Chip Murdock, WC’s Director of Diversity and Inclusion & Service and Civic Engagement, is one of many at the college celebrating Black History Month.
