What a success! Food and Animal Sciences 1st pot luck after COVID. We had a great time getting to know one another, but even more so, learning each other’s ethnic backgrounds! Students were to bring a dish that represents their ethnic background and share the story or history of that dish. The students took the ”iron chef” competition to the next level and we had 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner for best dish! We have many more events and semester fun coming up!!!
