When I was in college (ancient times) my sorority used to have an International Buffet for charity each year where each sorority member made a dish from her nationality and then we served them all for maybe $5 or $10 entrance fee (ancient times). Since I went to college in NYC there was real diversity in the foods: Irish, Italian, Puerto Rican, Polish, French, German, Asian, etc.
When my niece was in elementary school each child contributed an ethnic family recipe and they sold cookbooks as a fund raiser.
In my daughter's middle school each month a differentr teacher brings in an ethnic dish for a faculty luncheon. They also are planning a soup fundraiser where children will bring in a soup of their ethnic background.
Have any of you particiapted in similar activities?
