All Nations food festival ends on a high

The first edition of the All nations food festival courtesy of Biler food happened over the weekend at Old Kampala secondary school where different people united through food, music and cultures.

The three-day-event was aimed at uniting different Ugandan cultures through food that is why cuisines from different countries and regions were on display. Nigerians, Ghanaians, Kenyans, Somalian and other different Ugandan foods were being sold at the premises.

“We came up with the idea to unite different Ugandan cultures because many events don’t offer such. We wanted people of different ethnicities in one place and we have achieved that,” said Leticia Namirembe, the proprietor of this event.

Food wasn’t however the only activity for the three days as there were artiste performances that came in from Ronald Alimpa of the Lusuku lwa cement fame, Joanita Kawalya who applauded the parents for taking their children to the festival, adding that this will help preserve their cultures.

The groover’s band and traditional dancers also had their shine at the event but it was Sunday that provided a perfect ending.
