Caribbean cuisine to spice up Marketplace lunch

In preparation for Thursday’s Celebration of Nations cultural festival, the Marketplace food court in the CAW Student Centre will spice up its lunches this week with foods from around the world.

The Wednesday, March 2, specials are drawn from the islands of the Caribbean: island-style jerk chicken, rice and beans and fried plantains, and Jamaican patties—either beef or vegetarian. Try them at the Chef to You station from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Thursday’s menu will centre on Chinese foods.

Celebration of Nations will feature cultural displays and performances in the CAW Student Centre Commons, March 3 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
