Building Cultural Diversity Through Food
July 8, 2014
Where do all the immigrants in Lethbridge come from? This is a question that was asked by the team at Lethbridge Family Services a few years ago and the Immigrant Services team decided to answer that through the development of a cookbook that would be reflective of the various cultures within Lethbridge. “Our Family’s Kitchen” Cookbook was launched in the spring and contains recipes from our immigrants and their home countries. Now Russel Jensen and his team from Scotiabank Main Branch have decided to take it one step further. Scotiabank is partnering with Lethbridge Family Services to sell these cookbooks and raise money for the youth Immigrant programs and supports that LFS provides. Starting on July 8th, the team at Scotiabank Main will be offering the cookbooks for sale at their location and will match the money earned (up to $5,000) through the Scotiabank Bright Futures Program.
