The Taste of America Program at UC Irvine provides the opportunity for local residents to open their homes to international graduate students for cross cultural exchange. The first few months in the U.S. are the most critical time for cultural adjustment. Students are curious about the American way of life and eager to connect with Americans. The Taste of America Program matches small groups of international students (2-5 per group) with local residents for dinner.

How will students and host benefit?
- Expose to diverse cultures
- Share customs and traditions
- Expand personal networks locally and globally
