The Princeton Eating Clubs

The Princeton Eating Clubs Holiday Food & Toy Drive Challenge is underway!

We were delighted to find out we would be working with the Princeton Eating Clubs on their holiday food and toy drive challenge.

You may be wondering: what are the Princeton Eating Clubs? The Princeton Eating Clubs serve as social and dining halls for approximately three-quarters of Princeton’s juniors and seniors. They are private, co-ed clubs located in elegant mansions, which serve as social hubs of the University, and have quite a history.

Eating Clubs at Princeton arose in the mid 19th-century with the first permanent Eating Club, The Ivy Club, officially opening in 1879. Famous Eating Club alumni include F. Scott Fitzgerald and Jimmy Stewart. (Fun fact: Fitzgerald makes the clubs the main setting in one of his major novels. How’s that for a tribute?)

While their history is enchanting, it is the Princeton Eating Clubs’ passionate mission for their food and toy drives that gets us excited. We can’t help but take notice, when college students take the time from their busy schedules to band together, and actively support the most needy in their community.

The Princeton Eating Clubs Holiday Food & Toy Drive Challenge runs now through December 5, benefiting the Mercer Street Friends Center and Food Bank in Ewing, New Jersey.

So, Princeton Eating Clubs, we’d like to say: here’s to you for making a difference today. Thank you for making the holidays brighter for families in need. And, can we come visit?
