Α multinational food festival took place in Thessaloniki in June at the beautiful Nea Krini organized by the Greek NGO AENAO under the Erasmus+ project STRATE.GEES.
The food festival was organized next to a big event (organized by the Municipality of Thessaloniki) where we invited migrants and refugees to participate.
We contacted the Center of Migrant and refugee’s office in the municipality and we succeeded to have guests from different countries; Georgia, Egypt, Jordan, Latin America, Syria, Palestine etc where they presented their own food, habits, music, dances etc.
The great number of guests at the event was a big surprise for us and the participants and the impressions were excellent. The food was fantastic; all kinds of flavours, aromas, colours accompanied a beautiful evening with traditional music and dances. The visitors of the festival had the opportunity to taste the food of foreign countries, get in touch with their culture and communicate.
We want to thank all the participants and the visitors of this event that showed us once more that when people get in touch and communicate the results will always be excellent.
