Fast Food Thanksgiving/Brotherhood Feast

Don’t have the time to put together a big Thanksgiving dinner? Looking for a fun way to introduce new pledge class members or recruits to the area? Plan a Fast Food Thanksgiving or Brotherhood Feast! This event asks each Brother or family to bring a certain dollar amount of food from their favorite fast food or local restaurant.

Requirements:

  • Budget for Brothers or families
  • Tables
  • Drinks
  • Cups, plates, utensils
  • Dining room or large common space

Optional: 

  • Recruits
  • Sorority/dates
  • Music
  • Costumes (This is inspired by Talladega Nights if you’re looking for costume ideas)

Tips to Remember:

  • This is an easy event that takes little time to plan so it can be held as often as the Alpha wants.
  • Works best when marketed very low-key. i.e. There is no expectation that EVERY Brother has to go. It’s as good of an event with 60 Brothers as it is with 6.
  • This can be a good way to introduce new men to the best spots in your college town.

Timeline:

  • 1 week out
    • Let Brothers know the day, time, location and food budget.
    • Buy supplies (plates, cups, utensils, napkins)
  • Day before event: Email or text the details to remind Brothers
  • Day of event
    • Generate buzz.
    • Make sure there are enough trash cans to dispose food.
    • Sit out supplies.
  • Post event: Don’t wait to clean up!
