Coffee Hour

     Every Wednesday there is an international coffee hour in Saint Edmund's lobby from 3:15-4:15.  It is put on by the international students in an effort to converse with other students to practice speaking English.  It is great because there are so many yummy foods to eat each week and they differ by region.  This week there were empanadas which are an Argentinian specialty.  Also there is always coffee available!  I have gone many times and it is great to grab a quick bite to eat and meet some new people from different cultures. 

Here is a croissant and some nutella from the French Coffee Hour! and YES it was as delicious as it looks!!!

Here is my cheese empanada! It was very good!!!

     Next week the Coffee Hour will be collecting food to help raise awareness of Homeless Awareness Week.  They will be collecting:
  • canned vegetables/fruit
  • canned soup/ravioli
  • ramen noodles
  • boxes of rice/pasta/cereal
  • peanut butter
  • jelly
     It is wonderful to be able to support those in need and this is a great opportunity to directly give help to others.  I hope you will go to these coffee hours and give some food at the next meet!  Have a fantastic week and feel free to send me any questions you have!!!
