Thanks to everyone who stopped by the "Celebrating Cultural
Diversity Through Food Sharing" Kick-Off Event on January 19, 2012.
We enjoyed tasty cuisine and learned about the cultural importance of
these foods from nations/countries/territories; such as, Albania, India,
China, Finland, Central African Republic, Sicily, Germany, Sweden,
Ireland, Slovakia, Malawi, Dominican Republic, Denmark, Russia,
Poland, Puerto Rico, and Trinidad. There was also food from the United States
represented by dishes from the African American and Native American
Kudos to all who prepared these wonderful foods and to the whole
Affirmative Action Advisory Committee for a job well done.
In addition to enjoying the food, sharing and fellowship, we
collectively raised over $250 dollars in cash and checks and a half barrel of
donated foods! This will go a long way to help those in need. Thank You!
