Area residents are invited to explore Canton’s wonderfully diverse community by attending special ‘Culture & Cuisine’ experiences that will be held at various houses of worship in the coming months.
Each visit will offer a brief overview of the faith, customs, and beliefs, as well as samples of some representative food and music from that featured, unique culture.
“We’re excited to once again be able to provide these unique culinary and cultural experiences to provide an opportunity for Canton residents to get to know their neighbors and increase their understanding of the unique cultures that make up our community,” said Jennifer Girard, Recreation Specialist. “We hope that these diverse experiences will encourage dialogue and engagement within our community that will ultimately lead to more appreciation and acceptance.”
These ‘Culture & Cuisine’ experiences will be held once a month on scheduled Fridays from 6:00-8:30 p.m. Upcoming sessions include:
- POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2023: Muslim Community of Western Suburbs, located at 1905 S. Haggerty Road
- March 24: Geneva Presbyterian Church, located at 5835 N. Sheldon Road

- May 5: St. Thomas a’Becket Catholic Church, located at 555 S. Lilley Road (please note special event time from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.)
There is a $10 per person fee for each visit. Choose from any or all of the houses of worship to attend. Registered participants are asked to meet at the house of worship on its scheduled day.
