Thanksgiving - there's a free app for that

Auburn University’s Food Systems Institute has teamed up with Suffolk County Community College in Selden, New York, to create a new holiday app just in time for Thanksgiving. The one-of-a-kind multimedia app brings together a wealth of useful and fun information for the upcoming holidays.

The Food Systems Institute aims to promote collaborations between different colleges and schools within Auburn University, as well as between the university and outside colleges. The opportunity to collaborate with a community college which offers a culinary arts program was too good to pass up, Food Institute Director Pat Curtis said.

“Our purpose with this free app is to create a comprehensive resource for you to enjoy, learn and use,” Curtis explained. “It is full of useful information from faculty at both schools. I think people will be surprised at just how much fun this publication has turned out to be.”

The app includes written articles about food safety and planning a feast as well as information about and recipes for favorite holiday foods.
