Special Events on Campus
Our dining team loves to create unique, memorable events for our guests on campus. Here are just a few examples of special events that we organize on campus each year.
It's our mission to not only serve fresh and authentic meals for our guests, but to involve and get to know them as well. We have several events on campus every semester that allow us to interact with our guests.
Pop ups are our way of surprising and delighting our guests. You may or may not know that they're coming but they sure are a nice treat when you walk into The Pit or Hilltop for your lunch. Stay tuned to all of the Deacon Dining social channels for updates on all events!
Each month we host a Supper Club somewhere on campus where our culinary team will be serving a 5 course plated tasting menu for a small group of guests! This exclusive event is a wonderful way for our chefs to show off their culinary talent!
Experience New Cuisines
We love to welcome local businesses into our dining halls so that our guests can experience great food that is right in our backyard. Look forward to seeing some of our local restaurants like the Porch, Alma, Silo, Canteen and Penny Path taking over the Pit grill several times each month.
Deacs, I don't think we're at WFU anymore. From exciting themes like Harry Potter to Great Gatsby, you'll feel like you were swooped up in a tornado and set down in a culinary dreamland.
Global Foods Dining
The Wake Forest University Food Committee brings together WFU students, faculty and staff and Deacon Dining to share diverse cultural and religious holidays, celebrations and heritages as expressed through our foods. Follow our Instagram @DeaconDining to stay up to date with when these will take place!
Mark your calendar now for Pitsgiving! This annual event takes place the Thursday before Thanksgiving in the Pit. Our guests get to celebrate those you are thankful for with your WFU family and friends all day. We serve serve turkey legs, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and all of your other holiday favorites. We even have a Vegan and allgood station for our guests with dietary preferences and needs!
Deacon Dining Culinary Chefs partner with local farmers, highlighting fresh, local ingredients in recipes. We are talking about local Brasstown Beef, Murrays Chicken, and Vernon Produce.
Local Product Tastings
Look for vendor sampling tables around campus during the semester and find some new and delicious products from vendors like Updog Kombucha, Gorilla Grains, MATI, Big Spoon and PS Snacks. Utilizing local vendors is a big part of who we are! We are so excited about our local vendors that we want to make sure you have the opportunity to taste what they have to offer.
