The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) again hosted one of their most anticipated events: International Food Festival. This fundraiser helps to provide the money needed for the GSO’s yearly student scholarships.
This year, there were foods representing Italy, Nepal, Mexico, US regional favorites and many more. Spaghetti and meatballs, curried couscous, and tabbouleh salad all fought for space on plates along with tiramisu and chocolate cake.
Jamie Friedman, PhD Student, brought beef brisket made with her mother’s recipe and said that she really enjoyed sharing it with others. One happy participant declared, “This food is really amazing!”
“Not only is this a good moneymaker but it is a great chance for everyone in the Byrd Biotechnology Science Center (BBSC) to get to know each other better, learn about the cultural heritage and traditions of our peers through their food, and gain an appreciation of the diversity in the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) program,” stated Taha Ahmad, PhD Candidate.
If you missed this fantastic event, make sure to mark your calendar for next year!
