51st International Food Fair
Put the world on your plate on March 29
by Jenna Neil
The annual International Food Fair will take place on Sunday, March 29, from 12–7 p.m. in Johnson Gym on the campus of Andrews University. The 2015 Food Fair will represent 82 countries and 18 ethnic clubs. Participating clubs include the Korean Club, Peruvian Club, Brazilian Club, Indian Club and Haitian Club, among many others.
The cost to try the food is minimal. Participants can purchase tickets in blocks of $5 to be used to obtain food at each booth. Cash transactions won’t be accepted at the booths and ticket sales will go to the respective clubs; some of the clubs use their earnings for scholarship funds to assist students and others use the funds for mission projects.
In years past, the event has been very successful with thousands of people in attendance, coming from as far as Chicago and Grand Rapids. It is a great opportunity to showcase the cultural diversity at Andrews University and to experience food and culture from around the world.
“We certainly hope that you can come and experience the variety of international entrees and dishes prepared by about 20 ethnic international student clubs,” says Robert Benjamin, director of International Student Services & Programs. “We are looking forward to seeing you at this event.”
