Pumpkin Carving & Meal Hosting

Open your home to share a fun fall tradition with internationals! Many students have never carved a pumpkin before, so this is an opportunity to connect through a new and fresh experience. Provide a meal and include special fall treats, like apple cider and pumpkin pie. Invite current IFI friends or sign up below to host others.

If you aren’t able to host, don’t worry. You can help by donating pumpkins to the families who can! Over 100 pumpkins are needed to make sure any student who wants to participate has a chance. Sign up to donate pumpkins.

Thank you for your heart for internationals!
