20th Annual Great UM Christmas Cookie Cook-Off
The 20th Annual Great UM Christmas Cookie Cook-Off, hosted by UM Dining and sponsored by Sysco Food Service of Montana. This year’s event, theme “The Nutcracker,” is open to all UM students, faculty, staff, and their families. Guests may bring home up to half of the cookies they bake; the remainder will be donated to local youth homes, senior homes, group shelters, and other non-profit organizations. This year Sysco Foodservice of Montana is donating approximately 800 pounds of cookie dough ingredients and decorations. The only thing participants need to bring is their holiday spirit.
Every year, more than 30 campus departments participate in this event and, as a result, about 300 dozen cookies are donated to 16 local charities. In addition to cookie making, there will be beverages, music, and a children’s play area. So bring the kids, or at least the kid in you, and join UM Dining for some tasty and charitable holiday fun.
The event will be held from 1:00-4:30 p.m. on the University of Montana Mountain Campus in the Lommasson Center’s Food Zoo dining room.
