Norton Park United Methodist Church Explores Tastes Around the World
Church Cookoff showcases foreign foods.
DULUTH, Minn.- Taking a break from just Irish culture this St. Patrick’s Day, the Norton Park United Methodist Church celebrated food from all cultures.
Their “Tastes Around the World” cook-off featured 15 different dishes from Italian, Asian, Swedish and German cultures, all competing to win the trophy.
The competition was a fundraiser for the church and for the CHUM food shelf.
“The church is more than the building, it’s the community,” said Diana Kuenzli of the church’s Pastor-Parish Relations Committee.
“And especially in today’s times it’s important to reach out to everybody. Nobody’s excluded, everybody’s welcome.”
In August the church will host a picnic, inviting local police officers and firefighters to mingle with the community.
