Out of the whanau frying pan
First Foundation are holding a special event for scholars and mentors to celebrate our diversity and connection through food. Culture and food traditions play an important role in shaping who we are and coming together to share a meal is a great way to get to know each other and learn about different traditions and backgrounds.
Sharing food, family recipes and the stories behind them is often a literal way of consuming culture and connecting with communities. Food also has the power to influence and transcend all boundaries because of how easily it can bring people from different backgrounds together.
The idea for this fun, social gathering came from talking with one of our mentors and her mentee. Called the Whānau Frying Pan, the event invites you you to join us for a meal, bringing fond memories from earlier years of food you have shared with family and friends on special occasions.
The events will be held on September 20th in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.
