People from diverse backgrounds will be asked to showcase food from their homeland at a “Stories from the Kitchen” event from 5pm-7.30pm at Springwood Community Centre, Saturday February 11.

The aim is to bring people together, to make vital community connections.

Participants are asked to bring a plate of food from their culture, along with a story to share.

Family and friends are also welcome to the centre at 55 Cinderella Drive, Springwood.

Council’s lifestyle chief Laurie Koranski said: “With 350,740 people and 234 different cultures in the City of Logan, there is a smorgasbord of food to be shared, stories to be told and connections to be made.

“Whether you’re a new or a long-term resident, we invite you to join the upcoming Stories from the Kitchen dinner to meet new people from different cultures.

“This is a chance to connect with a neighbour over a delicious meal and a chat about their culture.”

Organisers are also looking for volunteers to help run the event. Registrations at Eventbrite.
