International buffet/cookbook/fundraiser/etc

When I was in college (ancient times) my sorority used to have an International Buffet for charity each year where each sorority member made a dish from her nationality and then we served them all for maybe $5 or $10 entrance fee (ancient times). Since I went to college in NYC there was real diversity in the foods: Irish, Italian, Puerto Rican, Polish, French, German, Asian, etc.

When my niece was in elementary school each child contributed an ethnic family recipe and they sold cookbooks as a fund raiser.

In my daughter's middle school each month a differentr teacher brings in an ethnic dish for a faculty luncheon. They also are planning a soup fundraiser where children will bring in a soup of their ethnic background.

Have any of you particiapted in similar activities?

    I'm surprised that no one joined in on this. In fact, in Santa Fe where we are right now, a local church is having an International Luncheon (fundraiser)today: Ukranian, Ethiopian and Indian foods.

    I teach at a h.s.in Jersey,and last year we had a cook book of teacher recipes we sold as a fundraiser. My wife and I contributed two recipes and we still get comments from people who have tried and loved my wife's Japanese Chicken wings and my Mom's Swiss-Pasta dish. I'm surprised more people don't do this. Imagine a roadfooder's cook book!!!!!!?????
