The Alliance of Cultural Diversity in Research is hosting an International Foods Cook-off Friday, Nov. 3, to support The Vine Group — a non profit organization that provides educational resources to universities in Sub-Saharan African countries.

Participants will bring dishes, and tasters can eat and vote on the best ones at the event, which will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Light Hall atrium. A wide variety of prizes will be awarded in eight categories of food.

The deadline to enter is Oct. 25. For more information on the Cook-off, call Karissa McCall at 343-0534. To register, go to: http://www.vanderbilt.edu/Students/Organizations/ or e-mail acdr@vanderbilt.edu.
