International Friends Program Thanksgiving 2017
Enjoy a Thanksgiving Day Meal with an American Family
International Friends Program (IFP) is pairing up local American families with international students and scholars to share a Thanksgiving day meal.
International students and scholars interested in getting together with an American family for a Thanksgiving Day meal, can go to IFP's website at usuifp.com and fill out the Student Application Form, (also available at https://usu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_afJptasJFN6hPGR).
Submit your application no later than November 21, 11:59 pm. Participating students will be contacted prior to Thanksgiving Day with the assigned family’s contact information. Families should contact the students immediately to establish contact and make arrangements for the event.
Each year on the 4th Thursday in November, Americans gather for a day of feasting, family, American football, Black Friday shopping. Traditionally, Thanksgiving meals include turkey, served with mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, squash and other autumn garden vegetables, and pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving gathering originated as a fall harvest festival in 1621. Thanksgiving history is available at http://www.history.com/topics/thanksgiving.
Please feel free to contact IFP if you have any questions or concerns about this event.
