Titus Samys, founding president of the House of Lithuania, was one of the original proposers of the present-day Ethnic Food Fair while he was president of the House of Pacific Relations International Cottages (1980 and 1981). The well-established, long-running Ethnic Food Fair provides the opportunity for member countries to offer their traditional foods for the public's enjoyment. Items which were offered by the House of Lithuania in recent Food Fairs were imported Lithuanian ice cream "Dadu" and Lithuanian home-made cookies. Sausages with Lithuanian style sauerkraut, "Šaltibarščiai" (cold Lithuanian beet soup), "Kugelis" (Lithuanian potato pudding), are being considered for future Ethnic Food Fairs.
During the Ethnic Food Fair, members of the House of Lithuania greet San Diegans with Lithuanian or Litvak roots, provide visitors with information about the House of Lithuania, and even help with Lithuanian translation services.
