Oldfield Middle School Hosts Multicultural Food Festival
By Alison DeMaria
The Oldfield Middle School cafeteria was a melting pot of cultures during the annual Multicultural Food Festival, with students, their families and staff flooding the school to share their favorite cultural dishes, customs and performances.
Guests at the event sampled dishes such as Italian sausage and peppers, Greek salad, Irish soda bread, and Latin American empanadas while listening to the traditional songs of the various cultures represented. Student performances included “The Alphabet Dance,” Israeli folk song “Hashivenu,” Mexican folk song “De Colores,” and traditional Russian and Haitian dances.
