MARQUETTE - The All Nations Club at Northern Michigan University will offer tastes of different cultures at its International Food Fest on Sunday, March 24. The annual event will feature traditional cuisine from several countries, including China, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Poland and Thailand.

The public is invited to attend the food fest from 4-5:30 p.m. or from 6-8 p.m. in the commons area of the Jacobetti Center. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door. They can also be purchased in advance from the international affairs office in 203 Cohodas. There is no charge for NMU students.

The All Nations Club is composed of international and U.S. students. ANC members will do the bulk of the cooking for the event. "Food is an important part of any culture," said Yuan Yuan Tian of China, ANC president. "We hope this will be a fun way for people to learn more about other cultures in other parts of the world."

She added that the club recently acquired a "peace pole" with inscriptions in different languages. The pole, which eventually will have a permanent home on campus, will be on display in the Jacobetti Center during the International Food Fest.
