During a new library event students and faculty shared about food traditions

Sharitage (pronounced SHARE-itage) is a new monthly event hosted by the library. During the event Tologs share talents, educate us about something they do in their family or culture, or tell us a story about something interesting that happened to them outside of school time. This month’s Sharitage theme was food.

On November 5, senior Charlotte Taormina, kicked off the first Sharitage with a PowerPoint presentation about the differences between Israeli and Palestinian falafel, and then she served us samples she made herself! The Godinez sisters from Latinas United in Action educated us about the food found on a Mexican ofrenda on Dia de los Muertos. Mr. D’Mello shared a Pakistani pork dish with everyone, and Ms. Ortega passed around candies that her grandmother used to give her when she was a child. All in all, a dozen students and staff were moved to stand up and share short personal stories about everything from the invention of Keebler fudge stripes to a cherished Armenian family recipe created in a time of war that is now carefully passed down from generation to generation here in the United States.
 
The next event will be held on December 17 at lunchtime in the library. The theme will be holiday traditions in your family.
