Khana Khazana to serve Pakistani meal to aid flood victims Sept. 17

HOUGHTON -- Khana Khazana is back on the Michigan Technological University campus this fall. The weekly series of international lunches, a collaborative effort of a group of international students and Michigan Tech Dining Services, will kick off with a Pakistani meal this Friday, Sept. 17, with half the proceeds going to benefit flood victims in Pakistan.

The menu -- cooked by Pakistani students Saad Sikander, Amna Zahid and Iltesham Syed -- will include chicken biryani, a spicy chicken dish served with rice; vegetable samosa, a pocket of vegetables in deep-fried dough; sheer khurma, a Pakistani dessert; and your choice of fountain drink.

A full meal is $6, with half donated to Pakistani flood relief. Food will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last year, Khana Khazana did two benefit lunches for Haitian earthquake victims.*

Khana Khazana means "food treasure" in Hindi. Cooked by international students and served in the Memorial Union Food Court, Khana Khazana will feature the cuisine of a different country each week. It is a way to share the international flavor of Michigan Tech with the campus and community. The weekly lunches are open to the public.
