NIU Dietetic Interns plan global menus from ‘Around the World’

February 6, 2015

NIU Dietetic Interns: Around the WorldThe NIU Dietetic Interns return this semester with new stops “Around the World.”

A series of special dinners will be hosted at various dining halls during the week of March 2. “Destinations” are planned this semester in Australia, Latin and South America, and Northern Europe.

The entire NIU community is invited. Meal plans, Huskie Bucks, Flex Dollars and debit/credit are available as payment options at each dining hall.

The interns hope that these dinners will expose students to different cuisines from around the world – right at their own doorstep. Guests can expect fun games, entertainment and great food.

Raffle prizes will be given away at each dining hall, as well as bigger, global raffle prize drawings with “Passport for Prizes” for students who attend all three dinners. Obtain a passport at the first dinner and be sure to have it stamped at all three dinners to be entered to win.
