Thanksgiving break is finally here, a much-needed respite from the stress of classes and an interminably long midterm period. For those of you who can’t escape campus for the next few days, free food is here to help.
Start off the break with a stop at good old Leo J. O’Donovan’s for the annual President’s Thanksgiving Dinner, hosted by President DeGioia and his wife. Head over to Leo’s from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday to indulge in a complete pre-Thanksgiving feast, and don’t forget to RSVP here. If you don’t RSVP, you may miss an opportunity to take a picture with President DeGioia in a sweater. Vox, for one, will not be passing up that opportunity.
On Thanksgiving proper, head over to Alumni Lounge to join the Chaplains-in-Residence for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Join the CIRs at 5 p.m., and don’t forget to bring your appetite.
If you still happen to be hungry after one scrumptious Thanksgiving feast, head over to Epicurean from 6 to 8 p.m. for yet another round of delicious Thanksgiving food. If you won’t yet be tired of turkey, be sure to RSVP beforehand to email@example.com.

Mired as we are in exams and papers, only the prospect of Thanksgiving break and free food can get us through.
Chocolate, in our opinion, should be its own food group, but ever thought about how it could support child slavery? Join Ayn Riggs, the founder of Slave Free Chocolate, in the ICC Galleria today at 7:30 p.m. to hear her speak about slavery in the cocoa-growing regions of the world, and how it may affect you. Be sure to head over to learn more about the chocolate that you eat, and even snag some free trade chocolate as well.
Actual free food is slim this week, what with the majority of campus stressing over their pre-Thanksgiving work, but there are always subsidized cultural dinners to fill the gap. Join the International Relations Club for their second dinner of the year, this time at Mai Thai, with the meal partially funded by the club. Be sure to RSVP here, and meet at the front gates at 5:30 p.m. this Friday.

Halloween is over, so the copious amounts of free candy being doled out have come to an end, but there’s still plenty of free food to go around!
It’s Dia de los Muertos, everybody! To celebrate, M.E.Ch.A. de Georgetown will be hosting several opportunities to indulge in free food. Be sure stop by the altar in Red Square or the table outside Leo’s replete with delicious free snacks, or, if you want to engage in a discussion on what Dia de los Muertos means, head over to Reiss 112 from 8 to 9 p.m. with treats to follow.
Winter is coming, but perhaps a screening of (500) Days of Summer and the accompanying free pizza will warm you up. Hosted by the Graduate Association of Students of Philosophy (GASP), the film screening will be held in White Gravenor 311 at 6 p.m. on Thursday, so be sure to head over as much for the pizza as for the movie.
To round out the plethora of free food offered this week, Kara-o-Cocoa is the place to be if your love of scrumptious chocolate matches your passion for off-tune warbling. Join What’s After Dark in the Village C Alumni Lounge from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. this Friday for karaoke, hot chocolate, and a chocolate bar!

It’s Homecoming, folks! And while that in itself is delightful news, those of you with an appetite should prepare yourselves for the wondrous quantity of free food available on Traditions Day.
On Traditions Day, which occurs this Friday, start your day with scrumptious Corp bagels and coffee in Red Square without shelling out a penny from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Later in the day, bob for apples in Red Square with the Georgetown Farmers Market and the Corp from 12 to 3:30 p.m. for the chance to munch on a delicious apple and get a free “bobbing for apples” t-shirt.
Wrap up the free portion of Traditions Day with the mysterious “Free Food from Local Favorites” supplied by the Sophomore and Junior Class Committees from noon to 3 p.m. Hopefully, this means Leo’s didn’t make the list of offerings.
In a departure from our normal fare, this Friday the International Relations Club will be hosting a dinner at the Mexican restaurant Los Cuates from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and will be footing the bill for (part) of your dinner. While this may not be free, who doesn’t enjoy a subsidized trip to Los Cuates? Be sure to RSVP here to snag a place!
