IFFN 2021 = Six Nights of Fun!

International Family Fun Night is one of our community's most beloved traditions. The WHPA is partnering with SAGE, Student Council, faculty, staff, and families across all divisions to keep the spirit of this great event alive even during a pandemic. You can take part by ordering a subscription to our weekly dinners, which will take you on a culinary cruise across the continents. If you've shopped in a specialty market recently you may have run into our own Chef Anibal, as he browsed for indigenous ingredients and inspiration.

"We're bringing in guest chefs from throughout SAGE and folks I've worked with in my career so preparation of these dinners will be guided by experts in each type of cuisine," said Chef Anibal, who will collaborate with Chef Won Ho (previously worked under Celebrity Chef Floyd Cardoz) and Chef Charles Bunin (District Manager of Sage Dining).

In addition to the weekly dinners, please mark your calendars for Thursday, January 28 at 7:00 p.m. when we will present a virtual version of IFFN.

Here's how to take part:

1. The restaurant-caliber dinners will consist of an appetizer, main dish and side and must be ordered by noon each Monday at WHPA.givesmart.com - they will each serve a family of four and a vegetarian option will be available. We will have an afternoon pickup zone in front of the building; faculty, staff and US students can arrange to pick up in the AP Room.

2. Heating instructions will be included, along with a packet of recipes, fun facts and information about the culture, and a themed craft project and/or memento.

3. All this for only $30 each week! But we have an even better option: sign up for a subscription and your meal will automatically be waiting for you every week. At only $150 for the six weeks, you are getting one meal for free! In addition, subscribers will receive a complimentary notebook to save the weekly collection of recipes and materials so that at the end of our six weeks you will have an International Cultures and Cookbook unique to our own W+H community.

We’re cooking up plenty of other activities, too, so please read the PA section of the WHEN every Thursday, check this web page and follow us on social media to stay in the loop. 

Please reach out to us at parents@whschool.org with questions, comments, and ideas. We love to hear from you! 

Here’s to a great ’21,
