A Nutritious Nigerian Night

Sunday, October 25, 2020 - By: Chloe C, Allard ‘21

On Thursday, the Food Services Staff prepared a fantastic day of Nigerian-inspired food for us all to enjoy. The menu, as announced in Assembly that day, included a delicious dinner of Suya chicken, baby shrimp fried rice, fried plantains, and, much to the enjoyment of the students, nostalgic spring rolls remembered from our long-lost cookie break.

The fan-favorite of the meal was definitely the puff puffs, a tasty, bite-size doughnut to be eaten along with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Nina B, Alex ‘22, explained that she loves “all international dinners, but this one’s dessert just takes the cake”.

In addition to the day’s menu, Nemi G, Bright A, and Tiyasha S took time at assembly to educate us about the SARS situation that is currently affecting Nigeria. They urged us to donate what we can in order to help the youth who are not in a safe situation, due to the unlawful abuse of power from the Special Armed Robbery Squad. Bright reminded us that “It is important that we are aware of the issues going on, because only then can we make change.”

Many thanks to the Food Services Staff for preparing a delicious day of delectable dishes. Stay tuned for Hong Kong dinner next week!
