It’s Vegie Time!

Melbourne Multicultural Food Fair

Official Community Fundraiser for the Parliament of the World's Religions

27th September, 11am - 3pm,
St Kilda Town Hall
Cnr Carlisle St and Brighton Rd, St Kilda.
This event is organised by the Buddhist Council of Victoria for the purpose of raising awareness of the cultural diversity within the Buddhist community in Victoria.

The event aims to raise funds on behalf of the Victorian Buddhist community towards the organising costs of the upcoming Parliament of the World’s Religions (PWR) to be held in Melbourne, 3-9 December 2009, the world's largest interreligious gathering.

The event will feature tantalising food from the vegetarian cuisines of the diverse ethnic groups within the Buddhist community of Melbourne.

The Food Fair will also present introductory talks on Buddhism and Meditation and give participants the chance to experience the tea ceremonies of Japan and China.

This will be a ‘green event’ with all food served on biodegradable, reusable containers. Participants are urged to “keep the footprint low” by coming on public transport and bringing their own clean sealable containers to take food home to share with others.

Prices at the Food Fair are low with $5 and $2 coupons exchangeable for your individual choices.

Venerable Phuoc Tan from the Quang Minh Temple is a patron of the PWR and is assisting us in organizing this event.
