WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - More than 150 volunteers came out to serve the roughly 2,000 attendees at the 38th Annual International Food Bazaar Saturday afternoon. The event took place at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in West Lafayette.
With food from 22 different countries, hungry visitors had quite a selection to chose from.
Proceeds from the event will go to the International Center of West Lafayette. Organizers said the center relies on the event to help fund their program throughout the year.
"We've been working since January to bring volunteers together for this event," said Board Member Margaret Morris. "It takes about two days to set up and we're ready for the community to join us. I think the thing that you sense when you are here is how much enthusiasm each country brings to their table and the food looks great."
International Center is a non-profit organization that assists international residents and promotes cultural exchange.
