The NIH Asian and Pacific Islander American Organization (APAO) recently held its annual Ethnic Food Fair on the patio of Bldg. 31A. Several hundred employees enjoyed the event, whose main attraction was a rich variety of ethnic foods and a celebration of Asian heritage at NIH. This is the 42nd year such a celebration has been held at NIH. Representatives from local restaurants such as Shanghai Cafe, Tandoori Nights, Ben & Jerry’s and Matt’s Kabobs introduced their cuisine for NIH employees.

APAO sponsored tables where guests could try Japanese origami, Chinese calligraphy and learn about the health benefits of tea. There were also vendors selling jewelry and other items. This year, representatives from other NIH groups supported the event, including the Employee Assistance Program, NIH Federal Credit Union, PHS APA Commissioned Corps, PHS scientist professional advisory committee, NIMHD, NIAMS and NIH R&W. Part of the proceeds from food and sales will be donated to the Children’s Inn at NIH.
