The Campus Community Dinner Series (CCDS) provides a unique opportunity for families and students to learn about and experience the value of preparing and eating nutritional dinners and engaging in thoughtful conversation over food.  SVC has invited local families to their campus to join students for dinner and enjoy guided conversations about healthy meals and the value of higher education.  Studies show that there are many benefits of carving out time for family dinners, and this initiative furthers this effort by encouraging healthy eating in an educational environment.
