From tamales to turkey and mashed potatoes, you could find just about anything from across the globe being served at Storm Lake High School's Annual "Peer-Help Thanksgiving Feast".
"I tried just a little bit of everything and it was delicious!" said Robert Johnson, one of the school's bus drivers.
Around each Thanksgiving, students from the school's "Peer-Help" class serve Thanksgiving dinner to staff and the school's seniors.
The feast started 19 years ago and its aim is to share an American tradition with the school's international students; however, 19 year later, there is a cultural twist to it.
The international students are now bringing a little taste of their own countries to the table and are serving some of their own dishes.
"Today I brought green spaghetti, and they're like, 'What's green spaghetti?' I had to explain the sauce I put on it. They tried it, and they liked it. It makes them try other things and learn about our cultures," said Xochitl Montano, a Storm Lake High Senior.
Teacher Jim Nichols who teaches the "Peer-Help" class said the Thanksgiving feast is a great way for students to learn and embrace the other cultures of their fellow students.
"We need to trade places with people to have a true understanding. Whether its History or Sociology, whatever we're teaching. I'm pretty blessed. I have some pretty good kids," said Nichols.
Students also asked local police, firemen, and vets to come eat, thanking them for all the service they do.
