International Food Fair Is March 1

The annual International Food Fair at Hope College will be held on Saturday, March 1, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Maas Center auditorium.

The public is invited. The food will be available in exchange for tickets that will be sold at the door.

The International Food Fair has been sponsored by the college's international students for more than 25 years, and celebrates the many cuisines and cultures of the nations represented by members of the Hope community.

Hope students, alone and in small groups, get together to cook a dish from home. They will then wear traditional attire in presenting their dishes. Individual tables will feature the food and educational displays concerning the cuisine and cultures.

Individual tickets for the event cost $0.50 each, and most dishes will cost three or four tickets. The money raised will support the Heifer Project.

The Maas Center is located on Columbia Avenue at 11th Street.
