We all know that trying new things is a good way to learn about different topics and their surroundings. Sometimes, these “new things” don’t have to be extravagant activities, but more so tasting the delight of a variation of foods from different cultures. This is exactly what’s going to be happening on the week of January 15, 2024.

Lovejoy High School PTSO and Student Council have collaborated for the reappearance of the Multicultural Food Event. However, it’s not just the food event that is taking place, rather something bigger. The week of January 15th will be known as “Diversity Week”. You may be wondering what Diversity Week is; well it’s simply expressed in the title. Diversity Week is the emphasizing of varying cultures at our school. In a way, it’s bringing different parts of our school together as a whole with each embrace of multiple unique cultural backgrounds. 

The Multicultural Food Event is also a part of Diversity Week as well. This specific event was done 2 years ago, but hadn’t taken place last year. Now, the   collaboration between the two Lovejoy departments plans to bring it back again this year.

The more tasty part of this event will be the “Taste of Culture” that will occur on January 19th, 2024, a Friday. At this event, food from different cultures will be served in all A through C lunches, that way everyone can have a try at the tasty foods. The food that is being served will be provided by people who have already signed up for this event.

If you want to share your food from your background, you can sign up for the Multicultural Food Event using this sign up genius link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C094BA4A829A2FFC70-46866762-taste?useFullSite=true#/.

And yes, all people from different cultures (especially the clubs at our school that embrace the diversity of culture) can sign up and bring food, whether homemade or store bought. It is highly suggested you do so, and that you also share and educate your cultural background to the students at the school! Additionally, anyone that wants to speak on or have ideas on what to add to “Diversity Week” is encouraged to communicate through the LOJO STUCO instagram or email the Officer of Student Council, Maria Faoro at [email protected]m.  So, now the important question, what dish will you be bringing to the Taste of Culture event?
