Thanksgiving Dinner Program

The International Friendship Program (IFP), sponsored by Rutgers Global–International Student and Scholar Services, is seeking volunteers from the Rutgers and New Brunswick-area communities for our Holiday Dinner Program. The program provides an opportunity for international students and scholars to experience Thanksgiving, as well as to create an occasion for Rutgers and local community members to invite international guests into their homes. Our goal is for participants to share in friendship and cross-cultural learning through this traditional American holiday.

For more details about the program please see here.
