Khana Khazana features Thai cuisine to benefit flood victims in Thailand

HOUGHTON -- This week's Khana Khazana ("Food Treasure") will help Thai students raise funds for people in their homeland who face the worst flooding in more than 50 years.

More than 350 people have been killed and more than 2.5 million people have been affected.

Khana Khazana will serve Thai cuisine from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, Oct. 28, in the Michigan Tech Memorial Union Food Court. Profits will be donated to the people of Thailand.

This week's fare includes radish and tofu soup; Khao Man Khai, jasmine rice with boiled chicken and spicy sauce; and a dessert -- mango sticky rice, made with sweet ripe mango, sweet sticky rice, and coconut milk.

The cost is $6 for a full meal (which includes a beverage) and $2 for each item. There will be food for vegetarians, too.

Khana Khazana is a weekly collaboration of Michigan Tech Dining Services and international students.
