Groups host International Food and Culture Fair

The Pittsburg State University International Programs and Services Office and the International Student Association (ISA) will host the sixth annual International Food and Culture Fair on Friday, March 3. The event will be held from 5-8 p.m. in the gymnasium of the Pittsburg Church of the Nazarene.

Groups and individuals from more than 10 countries will offer food, crafts, information, and entertainment. The countries and regions that will be represented include several African nations, China, India, Japan, Korea, Nepal, Paraguay, Russia, Taiwan, the Turkic countries and the U.S.

There is no admission charge for the event. Attendees may purchase tickets for 50 cents each to exchange for samples of food. Crafts may also be purchased at the fair, and cultural information and entertainment will be available free of charge throughout the evening.

"We are grateful to the Church of the Nazarene for letting us use their gymnasium. It has excellent facilities, great parking and a central location," said Jeff Hashman, International Programs Coordinator and ISA adviser. "This event was such a success last year because of the enthusiasm of the students, and I am glad to see it continue. I think PSU international students do a great job touching the community, besides Pittsburg State University, giving them a glimpse of the world."
