In belated observance of National Pierogy Day (Oct.8, but celebrated at Penn College on Thursday to accommodate an opportune visitor), several Dining Services units featured assorted variations of the pasta-and-potato favorite. The Keystone Dining Room, CC Commons and Capitol Eatery included such fare as Buffalo Pierogies, Bruschetta Pierogies, Chicken Pierogisan and “the ever-popular Pierogi Loaf.” Pierogy Man traveled to campus courtesy of Mrs. T’s, a Pennsylvania-based business marking its 60th anniversary this year. In a promotion to help stop hunger, the Shenandoah pierogy-maker made a donation to a local food bank based on Dining Services’ purchase of its products.
