Salt Lake City—City Academy has continued its tradition of hosting a special Thanksgiving feast for students and parents.

This year’s feast was held at the school Nov. 18 during lunch. The food was provided by many parents and students at the school.

According to City Academy Executive Director Sonia Woodbury, “As a Title I school with over half our families being low-income, we know that often this is the only Thanksgiving feast some students will have. In addition, for some of our refugee students, this will be their first and possibly only exposure each year to this American holiday. This is a special event we look forward to each year because it brings us together to celebrate or our community and enjoy each other.”

KTVX Channel 4 News visited the school and ran a story about the special feast on Nov. 18.
