Then, the annual Soul Food Feast will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, in the John Marshall Room, located on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center. Cooley said the feast is an occasion filled with fellowship among friends, family and others from throughout the community."It is a joyful time to celebrate the spirit of love while enjoying the company and conversation with family, friends, faculty, students and others from throughout the community, enhanced by some of the most appetizing and traditional African-American dishes," Cooley said.
