The 6th annual Cedar Valley International Food Tasting Event will be held Sunday, August 18th from 12 to 3 p.m. at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls. This event is open to the public.

Enjoy an afternoon of sampling dishes from India, the Middle East, Bosnia, Thailand, and the Philippines. Learn about other cultures and enjoy live music by the "Sirens" and other fun activities.

Proceeds benefit the Northeast Iowa Food Bank Backpack Program. The BackPack Program provides children with bags full of healthy, easy-to-prepare meals and snacks for the weekend.
The bags are distributed each week through food banks nationwide, including the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. These backpacks make a difference in our community, and your help is needed to keep filling them. Join your friends and family and help make a difference for children here in the Cedar Valley.

In the case of bad weather, the event will be held at the Cedar Falls Senior Center located at 528 Main Street.
