YORKTON - It was an opportunity to taste some of the various foods of the varied cultures of Yorkton.
The event, organized by the Yorkton Ministerial Association, was held Saturday at Weinmaster Park.
“We realize number one, there’s so much diversity within the community,” said Peter Laniya, president of the YMA, who added “that’s reflected in the churches.”
Now in its second year the event is a celebration of the diversity within YMA churches and the community, said Laniya.
Having groups including Filipinos, First Nations, South Korean, Ukrainian, Nigerian, Jamaican and Canadian serving up traditional dishes from elk stew to spring rolls to perogies is a way of showing that diversity adds to the community.
It also sends a message of acceptance offered Laniya.
“We can be one if we accept each other,” he said.
