Immediately following the Founders Day program, The Ray Charles Program for African American Material Culture will host a ‘Sunday Dinner’ in an effort to celebrate and bring back the tradition of family meals. The dinner will be served from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Kearny Dining Hall on Dillard’s campus.
The inaugural “Dillard University Sunday Dinner,” is a dining experience to fellowship and thank our most dedicated and valuable Alumni. This event will not only provide a unique dining experience for guests, giving them a tour of traditional New Orleans and Southern cooking from featured New Orleans chefs, but also reawaken the customary practice of Sunday dinner. The menu includes baked potato soup, shrimp & grits, walnut and rum pie and many other delicious options. Featured chefs include Gason Nelson, Christian Green and Dillard Dining Services’ own Joel Williams for a taste of New Orleans and Down Home Southern Cooking.
Founders’ Day Convocation and the Sunday Dinner are open to the public. There is no charge to attend to the convocation; however, inaugural Sunday Dinner is reasonably priced at $10.15 excluding tax for individuals without a Dillard meal plan.
