Episode 7: Multicultural values and social inclusion through traditional food
In this episode of The Secret Life of Language, we explore the growing role of food in empowering refugees and recent migrants.
Living in a foreign land can be challenging enough, but often made worse by not having access to the traditional foods and family dishes of your formative years. In this episode of The Secret Life of Language, we explore the growing role of food in empowering refugees and recent migrants. Our guests talk about the different food businesses and initiatives that help recent migrants and refugees to not only learn from, but to also teach the local and broader community, with the aim of making refugees and migrants more economically independent and employable, as well as supporting their health and wellbeing.
