EDISON — Second graders at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in North Edison marked United Nations Day on the morning of Thursday, October 21, with a delicious luncheon in the Oakwood Room. The students recently completed a Heritage Report, detailing their native countries.
Each student’s family brought a side dish, main dish, or dessert from their heritage to share at the luncheon. Parent volunteers filled the Oakwood Room before the luncheon to arrange the dishes and set up the dining tables. Before eating, each student detailed the name of the country that his/her parents come from.
Some of the foods served included: flan, ravioli, samosas, spanakopita, vegetable rice, pierogies, pastelillos de carne (beef empanadas), macaroni and cheese, gulab jamuns (waffle balls – an Indian dessert), carrot kugel, Swedish meatballs, and a castle cake. (Photo by Michelle Daino)
