English Language Learner students at Plainfield High School – Central Campus hosted the school’s inaugural Cultural Celebration featuring food from all over the world.

Students and their families brought and sampled favorite dishes representing their native countries including Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Venezuela, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Vietnam, the Philippines and Brazil.

The students decided to make food the center of this first event because food is a source of pride and identity, and unites people across cultures, said Plainfield Central High School ELL teacher Karen Seeberg.
