They tasted food from around the world, but never had to leave their hometown.
The Exchange Club of Haverhill recently had its annual Food, Fun and Flare from Around the World event. Participants paid for "passports'' that allowed them to make stops at several local restaurants that offer food with origins in far-away places — including China, Greece, France, Italy, Mexico and the Southern United States.
Proceeds from this springtime fundraiser benefited Haverhill's Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, YWCA and Exchange Club.
The 13 restaurants that participated are: G's, Mark's Deli, Keon's 105 Bistro, Battlegrounds Coffee Co., The Lasting Room, Wang's Table, Hans Garden, La Pizza Di Forno, Olivia's, Butch's Uptown, Maria's Family Restaurant, The Peddler's Daughter and Casa Blanca.
