Junior Jungbin Lee worked at the Global Immersion and Friendship Club (GIF) food booth, selling Vietmanese sesame balls for $3 a rice ball. “We decided to [sell Vietnamese sesame balls] because … it’s not really a common food that people try like McDonald’s,” Lee said. “So we wanted to make people experience more [of] a different culture.”

MVHS Table Tennis Club sold Vons Chicken’s fried chicken wings during the event for $4 for two pieces and were able to sell out early. “I didn’t actually think [the chicken] would be this successful,” Reddy said. “I thought we would end up with leftovers but we sold out within the first half. I’m pretty happy because I was worried that [the fried chicken] was going to flop and no one would [buy from us]. But I was wrong. I was totally wrong.”
MVHS Microfinance sold Ike’s Sandwiches for $7 each. To officer Ojas Karnavat, Club Food Day is important because the event is one of the club’s main sources of income. “Overall, I think [Club Food Day] is a great opportunity for clubs to raise food, obviously, but I also think beyond just clubs making money, [Club Food Day] creates a culture of everyone coming together here supporting our clubs,” Karnavat said.
