The areas first annual International Food Festival goes this weekend at the Crosslink County Sportsplex.
Organizer Tosh Mugambi says the goal is to bring people together through food.
“Multi-cultural unity, that’s what this is (about). We just want people to come together, I believe it’s through food.”
Countries signed up include Ukraine, Palestine, Jamaica, Colombia, El Salvador, Cameroon, Korea/Asia, Venezuela, Philippines, Italy and France.
A percentage of food ticket proceeds goes to the United Way.
Mugambi says along with delicious eats, kids will be put to the test in the Zulu Kids challenge.
“There are 16 obstacles and up to three kilometres of running, so basically we go inside and outside of the Crosslink; there’s going to be obstacles outside, obstacles inside.”
