Thanksgiving Dinner VolunteersThis year’s 26th Annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner will take place on November 23 in the Archie Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union. Ohio State hosts one of the largest dinners on a college campus, with an estimated 2,000 guests attending each year.

Thanksgiving Day Dinner is made successful with the help of the community and Buckeye volunteers who spend a portion of their Thanksgiving Day serving dinner to those guests who are unable to make it home for the holiday.

Volunteer positions include beverage, dinner and dessert servers, greeters, hosts and food carriers. Registration is now open for volunteers and will be until October 23.

Dinner is served in two shifts: the first starts at 11:45 a.m. and the second at 2 p.m. Register to volunteer for the first or second shift online.

Thanksgiving Day Dinner is an Ohio State signature event and is supported by the Office of International Affairs and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Ohio State’s Global One Health initiative (GOHi) is an interdisciplinary project that coordinates approaches to improve health, build capacity and provide learning opportunities for students, faculty and staff across the globe. 

The Global One Health initiative began in 2009 and has successfully expanded to help those in need nationally, in eastern Africa, Central and South America, Thailand and China. Already well established in eastern Africa, Ohio State opened a regional office in Addis Ababa in November 2016 to manage activities throughout the region. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on November 11 to celebrate GOHi’s registration as a non-governmental organization by the Ethiopian Charities and Societies Agency.

The office will serve as a central foundational location to coordinate efforts between Ohio State and the eastern Africa region, with a focus primarily on One Health activities.
