This event will highlight the diversity of Africa in an effort to show appreciation for the cultures of our clients. At the 45th Annual International Taste of Columbus, we will be honoring the traditions of East and Central Africa and our clients will be sharing their stories and customs with the native population of Columbus. This event will offer a unique educational opportunity for community members interested in international affairs and cultural practices. All proceeds will directly benefit our comprehensive integration services for New Americans, in addition to our international program's delegations, international professionals in residence, and voluntourism trips.

Join us in celebrating the diversity of Africa! As a non-profit that works with refugees, immigrants, and professionals from Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Kenya, and other African countries, we want to share the traditions and customs of our clients with the greater Columbus community. Hosted at the African Event Center at the Columbus Zoo, guests will have the opportunity to check out the Zoo's Heart of Africa exhibit and hang with the giraffes and zebras! Additionally, guests can expect to enjoy a wide array of African entertainment, along with traditional dishes, drinks, and hors d'oeuvres. RSVP today - seating is limited!
