Food for Thought

The third annual Food for Thought event to honour United Nations World Food Day was held on Saturday 13th October at the Bedwell Community Centre. The fundraising event brought together 10 ethnic community groups, each of which prepared various traditional dishes for everyone to sample. There were delights from around the world including Cyprus, Zimbabwe, India, South Africa, Romania, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Ireland, Uganda, the West Indies and Singapore. With children's activities and great raffle prizes, there was fun for all the family.

"This is a brilliant way for many people to sample different kinds of foods, especially as it helps bring communities together. Great event," said one of the guests.

The event raised over £250 which has been passed on to the United Nations World Food Programme to provide food for the less fortunate.
