Buen Provecho! has brought together elders and youth in a sharing of traditional foods and stories. Elders shared favorite food recipes with Britannia Community Centre youth and together are creating a cookbook and digital storytelling project that values the knowledge of elders and the passing down of this knowledge to youth.
Buen Provecho! is promoting respect, mutual understanding, and awareness of cultural foods and knowledge as valuable community assets. The creation of a cookbook and storytelling project will further build pride and cultural identity among project participants, keep traditional food recipes alive, and teach youth healthy eating.
Ten food stories will be uploaded on to our new Buen Provecho Blog. The first stories are up now for your enjoyment
