Food and traditional cuisine from twenty different countries will be showcased at this year’s International Food Festival.
The theme for this year’s Festival hosted by the Fiji National University is “Home Garden & Backyard Farming – Food for All”
Opening the Food Festival yesterday Education Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy says the theme is timely since Fiji is going through the many Non Communicable Diseases that occur due to the type of diet and lack of exercise due to busy lifestyle.
Dr Reddy says backyard gardening can inspire you to take an interest in the origins of your food and make better choices about what you put on your plate.
The weeklong Food Festival is held at the FNU’s Namaka Campus, in Nadi.
