Transcript for Professor makes Thanksgiving feast for students
A college professor is reaching out to her campus community this Thanksgiving. Janai Norman is here with that story. Good morning. Reporter: Some students at the university of Iowa may have to give up spending the holiday with their family this year, but they won't have to give up on their Thanksgiving feast. Communications professor, Dr. Elizabeth pierce says she didn't want any students to fd or lonely, so she offered to make extra portions of her home-cooked Thanksgiving meal and deliver them directly to her students' dorms or apartment. That going viral, and reaching nearly 1 million people. I hope this just touched people not because it's a big gesture or anything great, but just because it was just a little ray of sunshine in kind of a dark time. That's exactly what we need. Dr. Pierce also told students to let her know if they're social distancing with any roommates so she N send extra food, and there are vegan options. Oh, man. So sweet, and right up your alley, Dan. And tofurkey. All I can make is toast. Thank you, janai. Appreciate that. That's a great story.
