Hispanic Food Festival Held at Mount Union College

October 24, 2008

The fifth annual Mount Union College Hispanic Heritage Food Festival was held in Campus Grounds in the Hoover-Price Campus Center in observance of Hispnaic Heritage Month.

This event, which falls during Hispanic Heritage Month, was designed to promote awareness of Hispanic culture within the Mount Union Community.

“This year is going to be bigger and better than last year’s because we have a mariachi band and also more ethnic dishes,” said Tori Snyder, administrative intern in the Multicultural Student Affairs office.

Synder added that the ethnic dishes were prepared by herself and senior Rachel Camargo and Camargo’s family.  The different types of food included: salsa, refried beans, rice, enchiladas, paella, arroz con leche and fried plantains among many other items. 

The Hispanic Heritage Food Festival is just one of the many scheduled events during Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15.
