PSU students connect
PITTSBURG, Ks — Food from 13 different nations were plated up at this year’s Pittsburg State University International Food and Culture Fair.
The local community could sample cuisine from across the globe at just a dollar a plate.
More than fifty people lined up before serving started. Items included Korean style pancakes, Arabic coffee, French crepes and Taiwanese bubble milk tea and braised pork on rice.
Proceeds help support the International Friends of Pittsburg to put on more events like this.
Long Xiao, with the International Student Association said, “I also think it is really good for the people to have this sense of respect for diversity, for multiculturalism. So, I really think it’s important we keep up with this tradition that we keep up with this event we are doing.”
Besides food, there was modern dance from India, classical Chinese dance, as well as cultural performances from Paraguay, Finland, Kazakhstan, Brazil, Taiwan, and more.
