What’s been cookin’ at SAS? Food Fest photo essay

Food Fest kicked off with hordes of hungry children vying for syrup drenched snow cones, sticky chocolate smores, and other endless sweet tooth and savory fulfillments. Service and general clubs surrounded the perimeter of the HS and MS gym, supplying scrumptious delights from sweet cheesecakes to deep fried corn dogs, while student performances filled the gyms with their soothing tones. Food Fest did not disappoint to start the weekend filled with two things everybody loves most: joy and food.

Service clubs filled the majority of booths, bringing in treats to raise awareness for their club and send out a good message. It was a good opportunity for clubs to earn the money they need, as well as to get more recognition. With all these service clubs, the fest seemed lively and full of  hard working students pleasing everyone’s appetites.

 

General Clubs and Honor Societies

 General clubs and honor societies also set up food booths to earn profits for their events during the year.

 

Cultural Booths

PTA moms scrambled to give out food in the cultural booths to share their countries’ finest cuisine and delicacies. From sushi to bulgogi, adobo to Balinese rice, it saturated our taste buds in a culturally diverse experience.

We all agree that food can sweeten anyone’s day. Next year’s Food Fest will come and give us something to indulge in once again. But now that I think about it, we don’t have to wait that long–the County Fair is right around the corner.
