With help from Breadsmith in Cranford, Pinho’s Bakery in Roselle and Barshay’s restaurant in Roselle, admission to this event is offered free of charge to the public. Half of the proceeds from food and booth sales will benefit "Water is Life,” a charity that supplies filtering straws to people in third world countries in an effort to prevent water-related illnesses.

In addition, the Vo-Tech School will also be hosting a food drive with the statewide community service project, New Jersey Future Farmers of America Against Hunger, and will be collecting canned and/or dried goods that will be donated to the Rutgers Against Hunger Program. Donating participants will be given a free plant from the FFA Club for their contributions while supplies last.

The Multicultural Fair is a day of cultural awareness created by the Multicultural Club of the Union County Vocational-Technical School District.
