Food is a great vehicle for sharing culture with people from different backgrounds.
The Erasmus+ project “Healthnic: Healthy and ethnic diet for inclusion” created the Healthnic Diet Workshops based on participatory learning methodology. The workshops enable participants to acquire basic skills such as home economics, healthy eating education, food preparation methods and also ICT skills by creating digital stories focused on the knowledge gained. Above all the project focus on how a person can acknowledge her/his own home country food traditions and interact in a culturally inclusive environment
The partnership is composed by Vardakeios School (GR), Danmar Computers (PL), Diciannove Coop. (IT), Institute of Technology, Tralee (IR) and Merseyside Refugee Support Network (UK)
The project has created and made available to all:
The Healthnic Diet e-platform where you can find all the materials implemented during the project
The Practical Guide to Healthnic Workshops- available in Free Download here
The Healthnic Toolkit - a free web-based interactive manual available here
videos produced over the last two years in the various workshops developed in several European countries.
Cooking as a group brings us together because we are able to share our culture and heritage through food and give each other nourishment.
Healthnic Diet workshops is an ideal educational tool for professionals working with refugees, immigrants and generally with vulnerable target groups.
