Taste of the U sounds call for chefs

After the turkey and dressing, but between eggnog and king cake, there’s UMMC’s homage to food and fund-raising, Taste of the U. The 2014 Taste committee is calling for chef teams to sign up for the event, planned for Saturday, Feb. 22. Teams can call Melanie Lauderdale at 5-8319 or e-mail her at

Taste of the U chef teams drive the entire event. Just ask Keeley Fredrick, left, and Chris Carter, center, who served at the Department of Information Services Cluck Truck a couple of years back as they prepared chicken and waffles for Dodie McElmurray, right.

Taste of the U raises funds for the UMMC Alliance, a non-profit charitable and social organization that serves Medical Center patient, family and facility needs.
