Taste the World This Wednesday
Cuisine from Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East/Mediterranean, North America, and South America will be available in booths staffed by volunteers from the university community.
Students: be sure to arrive early, as 250 navy blue long-sleeved T-shirts will be given away on a first-come-first-served basis. Students can also enter a drawing for an iPad and a Beats headphone; the winners will be announced Tuesday, April 1.
“Going to the Taste of the Our World last year was eye opening,” said Jessica Neiser, a senior in School of Interiors. “I tried a variety of foods that I normally would be hesitant to try. Now, I love European cuisine!”
During the Taste of Our World celebration, the festival committee members host a Ten Thousand Villages sale of jewelry, home decor and gifts. As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages builds long-term relationships with artisans that are based on mutual understanding and respect. Fair trade enables artisans to earn a fair wage. Purchases from Ten Thousand Villages support artisans from around the world who receive a fair wage. To view the kinds of items that will be on sale, visit the Ten Thousand Villages website at www.tenthousandvillages.com/home.php.
