Every year in the fall our church holds an International Food Fest where the entire parish comes together to cook authentic items from around the world.

This year the International Food Fest is planned for Saturday, November 12th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the church fellowship hall. We have many volunteers but could still use more. There are lots of things to do including shopping, washing pans, pots, bowls, and utensils used in preparation which is vital and important parts of the process and crucial to the event’s success.
We will be making and selling many favorites again like Spanakopita, Stuffed Cabbage, Kibbee, Baklava, Stuffed Grape Leaves, Spaghetti Sauce, and Meatballs, Koulourakia, Biscotti, Pizzelles, and many other items including baked goods.
