Food Culture: Exploring the importance of food and culture

World Vision Ireland

Join us for an evening of food-tasting and exploration, celebrating the global cultural significance of food, and the importance of nutrition. We’ll be joined by special guests, including Ellie Kisyombe, social activist & co-founder of Our Table. She’ll be introducing us to an array of international flavours.

World Vision Ireland is a child-focussed humanitarian and development aid charity. As a global organisation, we recognise the cultural significance food has for countries worldwide. In this event we’ll be promoting culture through food by bringing together diverse people from different cultures and ethnicities to explore food and its attachment to people’s cultural identities.
