Environmental Club Holds Vegetarian Food Festival
The Environmental Club held its third annual Vegetarian Food Festival on September 13th. President Jillian Anderson said “It was a great start to an amazing year!” Many people from the club brought in meat-free dishes to share.
There were all sorts of vegetarian foods such as salads, pastas, mini cream cheese and olive sandwiches, cheese and crackers, and fruit salad. Mrs. Surresh, a new CATA science teacher, brought in a special surprise. She herself is a vegetarian and brought in a tasty Indian pastry called Samosa. Other people brought in delightful desserts such as brownies and cupcakes. It was a real feast!
The festival turned out to be a real success; there was a little bit of everything. Everyone found something delicious to try whether it was a traditional Indian dish, or an every day American cupcake.
“The Enviornmental Club takes pride, not only in helping preserve the planet, but also in contributing to cultural diversity,” said Vice President, Maria Garcia. This year’s food festival was an all-around great time and it is always something to look forward to. The food was not only tasty, but the students had an opporunity to bond and get to know each other better.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Food Festival, it was a great way to spend a Thursday afternoon. Any students interested in joining the Environmental Club should see Ms. Kopchick.
