Best of Calgary - Around the World Dinner from EthniCity Catering

Join the Best of Calgary for the ultimate cultural experience and satisfy your international palate. The Best of Calgary have brought together a tasty menu of dishes exclusively catered by CFNs Ethnicity Catering, that explores food from five refugee countries including Syria, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Congo and Albania.

The multiple course dinner will feature a representative from each country speaking of their experiences of immigrating to Calgary. The Around the World dinner was chosen to be a part of the Best of Calgary Interactive labs and experiences, as the Centre for Newcomers is an important component of the community in our city.

EthniCity Catering is a social enterprise of the Centre for Newcomers that provides transitional employment and training for immigrant and refugee women and men, and a multi-ethnic menu for Calgary customers. Offering a temporary and part-time Canadian job, along with training to work in a commercial kitchen, the program also presents the opportunity to learn essential life skills and workplace training, along with a food safety card from Alberta Health Services and support in looking for permanent work.
