Community members are invited to experience the taste of the Philippines through the Filipino themed Culture Bites event to celebrate Harmony Week.
Hosted by Bundaberg Neighbourhood Centre, Culture Bites aims to connect the community and celebrate the many cultures that make up the Bundaberg Region.
Bundaberg Neighbourhood Centre’s Praveen Mathew and Maggie Xu have organised the first Culture Bites event for the year which will take place during Harmony Week.
“The Culture Bites is primarily a multicultural food sharing event,” Praveen said.
“It is our regular flagship event that supports the multicultural community and recognises their value to our community.
“As part of the Harmony Week celebrations, the Bundaberg Neighbourhood Centre is hosting this coming Culture Bites event on 18 March supported by Bundaberg Regional Council and Bundaberg and District Australian-Filipino Association Incorporated.”
Maggie said they were looking forward to sharing great food and flavours with a Filipino theme with the community.
“It’s a great opportunity to experience flavours and culture of Philippines, along with various cuisines from other cultures,” Maggie said.
“All community members are welcome to join us.
“The event will provide the opportunity for interaction and friendships to form between people with different cultural backgrounds.”
Culture Bites is a free event for those who bring a plate of food preferably from their culture to share or for the cost of $5 for those who don’t contribute.
Praveen said attendees were encouraged to wear their traditional dress.
“People can expect to see a variety of cuisines from different cultures at the event, as well as Filipino cultural performances and presentation.
“Culture Bites is a great opportunity to showcase and promote multiculturalism and harmony in the Bundaberg Region.
“This event gives members in the wider community a chance to get to know and appreciate different cultures while enjoying cuisine and making friends.”
