Good Friends, Good Food
March 19, 2016
On Saturday, March 19th, in celebration of Multiculturalism Week in Newfoundland and Labrador, and in collaboration with the Spruce Hill Church Group, the ANC delivered a “Good Friends, Good Food” event for refugee women. The event provided participants with an opportunity to learn how to cook with local ingredients (e.g., blueberries, cod, etc.) and provided Canadian-born participants with a chance to learn how to prepare a number of traditional Syrian dishes. The final culminating activity involved the women from Spruce Hill Church and the Syrian women and their children spending the day together cooking, eating, learning from each other, and building a community that is stronger through diversity and inclusivity.
