Penn State’s Association for India’s Development (AID) โ€” a student-run organization of volunteers โ€” will host a “Taste of India” food festival this upcoming weekend.

The event will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, at Mount Nittany Middle School.

Over 15 traditional Indian dishes and drinks will be featured at the event, including rajma (a hearty bean curry), sambar (a veggie-lentil stew), and masala chai tea (a spiced milk tea).

There will also be live music and activities throughout the day.

The event was designed to help raise money for AID’s passion, which is funding multiple social causes in India such as low literacy, women’s empowerment, and post-trauma rehabilitation following national disasters.

Tickets can be purchased here. Adult admission costs $20, students pay $15, and tickets for children aged 5 to 12 are $10. Donations to AID are also accepted when purchasing tickets.
