PS 110 Hosting ‘Lower Eats Side’ International Food Festival Tomorrow

Posted on: June 15th, 2018 at 5:09 am by

This weekend you can eat your way around the globe at Public School 110 (aka the Florence Nightingale School).

The PTA at Public School 110 on Delancey Street is throwing a “Lower Eats Side” international food and music festival. First held in 2015 on the 110th anniversary of PS 110, this year’s food spread will consist of family recipes from 25 countries – a representation of the diverse nationalities of the students within the school. Parent chefs will prepare the home cooking for all attendees.

There’s also going to be a live set from the school parent rock band, “The Nightingales,” who notably won the School District 1 family battle of the bands at the Bowery Ballroom. Also featured throughout the festival is a tag sale, raffles, family portraits and more.

“We have one of the most diverse schools in New York City, and we’d like to celebrate this fact with a food festival that we think rivals Smorgasburg,” said Naama Laufer, PTA President. “We have students of Dominican, Serbian, Spanish, Danish, Belorussian, Trinidadian, Hungarian, Bolivian, Filipino, Japanese, German and many more backgrounds attending the school. The school’s diversity inspired us to celebrate the food and culture of the Lower East Side with a festival for the neighborhood.”

It’s happening at 285 Delancey Street at Lewis Street tomorrow, from 1 to 4pm, rain or shine. Entrance fee is $10, and includes all food and entertainment.
