St. Laurence Parish in Upper Darby is inviting community members to experience the food from nearly 20 countries at the first annual St. Laurence International Food Fair on March 29.
The event, chaired by parishioner Hank Teti, will be held from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the parish hall, located at 8245 West Chester Pike in Upper Darby. Admission to the event, which will include live music from various cultures, is free. Tickets will be sold for food.
St. Laurence School students made ceramic bowls for the occasion, and will be selling them to visitors. There will be additional activities available for children at the event.
“This is an opportunity for us to come together and celebrate the rich cultures in our community,” said Father Sean F. O’Neill, St. Laurence’s pastor.
Countries represented at the event will include Ireland, Vietnam, Spain, Philippines, Ethiopia, Korea, Nigeria, Germany, Hungary and others.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
