Food immigrates to Syracuse campus

February 7, 2014 by  

This weekend, residents of the Syracuse area should get themselves ready to taste some unique food.

The pop-up food court called My Lucky Tummy will be heading to Syracuse University campus, providing students and locals with the opportunity to partake in foods from different parts of the world, or different cultures. People from Bhutan, Uganda, Afghanistan, Iran, and the Mohawk Nation will be preparing their traditional foods and serving them for all to enjoy.

My Lucky Tummy hires refugees and immigrants who live in the Syracuse area as part-time chefs to work at their food courts. Their events always feature dishes from five different countries or cultures. They also put an emphasis on not ever serving the same dish at multiple events, so there will always be something new to try.

Organizers for this event might look to printing companies to create flyers or posters for advertising in Syracuse and nearby towns like Liverpool. They might also want brochure printing companies to create informational pieces about the My Lucky Tummy organization or even print menus with information about the food being served.

The event will take place this Saturday, February 8, and it runs from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm. It will be held at the Alibrandi Catholic Center on the Syracuse University campus. There is a $20 admission fee for those who purchase tickets in advance through the company’s website. Guests can also purchase tickets at the door for $25.
