International Feast – Thursday April 20

This yearly event held in the school gym will amaze you with a feast of delicious foods from all over the world! We ask that each family who attends brings a dish from their culture to share with others (enough for around 8 people). Every family can then sample the tasty treats that have been provided.
Volunteers are needed to help with the set-up, food serving and clean-up after the event . Thank you very much!

We are also asking that you bring a non-perishable food donation to the International Feast along with your dish so we can start collecting for the JUST GIVE Cram-A-Cruiser Food Drive.
