What’s on the menu? How does Brazilian sound?

On October 29, the International and Multicultural Student Organization (IMSO) and Sodexo teamed up to bring a taste of Brazil to Alcorn’s campus through Sodexo’s program known as “Crave”.

At only $10 per ticket, guests were served a five-course meal consisting of foods native to Brazil. In addition to the food, IMSO prepared a program that included a presentation of Brazilian culture and stellar performances by Aubrey Wright, a freshman majoring in music, and Genuina Dalberto, an exchange student from Brazil.

“I came to support Brazilian students that are enrolled in our program,” said Dr. Daniel Collins, chair of the Department of Agriculture. “Genuina did an excellent job singing. We enjoy having Brazilian students, they learn from us and we learn from them.”

“We loved the food! It was delightful and refreshing,” shared E’niya Rowry, a sophomore, psychology major. “We especially enjoyed learning about Brazilian culture.”

“The goal of the program is to create opportunities for campus members to explore new cultures and foods,” said IMSO President 2013-14 Tony Innouvong.
The dinner was the first installment in the “Crave” series.

The next event will be held at 7:00 p.m., November 19 in the Dr. Clinton Bristow Jr. Dining Facility. Tickets are $10 each or two for $15. For more information and to RSVP, please e-mail Tony Innouvong at [email protected] .
