FaithAction International House is hosting their yearly multicultural Thanksgiving Monday, November 14.
Created to expose people in the community to new meals and cultures, FaithAction’s free-of-charge Multicultural Thanksgiving will be filled with folklore dance, instrumental music, and holiday cheer. People in the organization expect a high turnout since the Greensboro-based event has been on hold for the last two years due to the pandemic.
Jasiel Bernal-Muñoz is FaithAction’s social media and outreach coordinator. He says they’re asking attendees to bring both a homemade dish from their culture to share and a non-perishable food item for the organization’s food pantry.
"We think that this is a great way to engage the community that we serve," explains Bernal-Muñoz. "This event is open to anyone in the community. So you don't necessarily have to be an immigrant or refugee."
FaithAction is an organization that helps refugee and immigrant communities around the world.
