Burnaby foodies invited to evening of international flavours 

March 1, 2018 by  

The Rotary Club of Burnaby’s International Food Festival is set to return to the city for its 6th year, and it will give those who attend the function a chance to travel a world of tastes without ever having to leave home.

The function, which will showcase the talents of the Youth Train in Trades Program, will feature dishes from Japan, Italy, India, the Philippines, Mexico, Africa and the Ukraine. The students will prepare the food for the guests, and there will be lots more going on as well.

Chef Stephan Wade will oversee the youth as they work, and as the attendees enjoy their meals, they will be able to take in the music and other entertainment. The evening’s efforts have been planned as a fundraiser for several of the different community initiatives the Rotary Club supports.

The beneficiaries of this year’s event include the Burnaby Fair Haven Seniors’ Affordable Rental, the Four Storeys Apartment Housing Project and also the outdoor Wellness and Fitness Fixtures capital campaign. A portion will also be allocated to providing bursaries for the Youth Train in Trades program. Brochures that provide more information about the organizations that will benefit from a fundraiser like this can be provided by an area printer.

Burnaby Central Secondary School will the location for this year’s festivities, which have been planned for April 21st. Anyone who would like to learn more about the event is welcome to visit its Facebook page for additional details.
