It’s Friday, March 2. The lunch bell rings, and the race begins.

Students push past one another, jostling their way through the halls and down the stairs. Wallets are out, lines are forming, and the quad is overflowing with people beyond imagination.

The cause of this rush? The cultural clubs’ food sales.

Every year, right after Carlmont’s annual Heritage Fair, various ethnic clubs are invited to sell food in the quad during lunch. With the promise of new, atypical lunchtime foods, students eagerly await and contribute to this event.

“It’s good for our students to have a day where there is an opportunity to have different types of food other than what we offer at the cafeteria,” Grant Steunenberg, the Assistant Vice Principal, said.

On March 2, Chinese Culture Club delivered with its trademark array of lunch boxes. These boxes, filled with rice, noodles, beef, and other types Chinese food, were one of the most popular dishes sold during lunch.

It’s good for our students to have a day where there is an opportunity to have different types of food other than what we offer at the cafeteria.”

Club member Isla Shi, a senior, said, “We sell food boxes twice a year: Heritage Fair and Homecoming. Usually, we make a lot of profit and tend to sell out.”

Another popular destination for food sales was the Filipino Club. The club sold lumpia, which is a Filipino fried spring roll. According to Josh Camerino, a senior in Filipino Club, lumpia is a crowd favorite among Carlmont students.

All funds raised will be used to help the clubs buy needed materials to keep themselves running into next year.

Camerino said, “These sales are all for apparel or if we ever need supplies for our next performance at Heritage Fair.”

With the enormous mob of students buying food during lunch, clubs sold out at a quick rate. Once the first half of lunchtime was over, most clubs had already begun to pack up and move out.

The end of these food sales marked the true end of heritage fair for the 2017-2018 school year, leaving students and club members in anticipation for next year.
