Celebration of Culture
The Food & Nutrition program was approached by Student Council to host a ‘Celebration of Culture’ event at Hamilton District Christian High. The vision of the event was to highlight the diversity within our own community with a focus on the various cultures represented in our school.

A Culinary Event
We have students studying at our school from around the globe, including regions of China, Greece, Iran, Italy, Spain, South Korea, Thailand, and Nigeria. The event took weeks to plan as the students involved shared their favourite traditional recipes and took trips to the grocery store to purchase the ingredients needed to prepare a cultural feast. The students in the Foods program were assigned to one of the cultural regions that they were interested in and were able to help with the food preparation, presentation, and the country posters.
The entire school was invited to sample the food that was prepared and served during lunch in April. The event provided the chance for these students to share their traditional food with their peers. It was an amazing celebration of culture which was an amazing blessing for everyone involved!
