On January 15, 2000, the Star Tribune reported that Somalian and Oromo students from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis, MN cooked an end of Ramadan meal for their teachers and school's staff members. Of the roughly 1550 students at Roosevelt high school, more than 500 are from Somalia and a good number of students are Oromo, who hail from Ethiopia, Kenya, and neighboring countries. The end of Ramadan meal, which is becoming a tradition at Roosevelt high school, was funded by moneys raised by the students through selling T-shirts and their personal contributions.
