This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Face to face interaction was so much reduced because of COVID19 that our sense of community and belonging felt strained. This feeling might be changed now and we can do this through food to foster a greater sense of togetherness and joy, and all for a good cause, to increase the spirit of our community. We can share our favourite recipes, a dinner which is a staple of our culture. Food brings people from all walks of life together: the different spices, the decoration & presentation, the skill of cooking itself;

What we'll deliver:

  • Preparing traditional romanian dinner: zacusca, eggplant salad, cabbage rolls with mince meat, mici, polenta with cheese
  • Hire bouncing castle and slide
  • Hire a sound sistem for Romanian and Bulgarian music
  • share recipies

Why it's a great idea:

Gastronomy has always had a very important role in bringing cultures together. Romania and Bulgaria have an important background of traditional food products, as well as the authentic way of preparing them. This project would be an opportunity for people to get to know eachother better, to become friends, to do activities together, to help each other when somebody needs help and would bring people in a real community. We hope that in time this will become a habit, I would like to see the community coming to these meetings with their own food to share with others.

Steps to get it done:
