A Taste of Harmony is Australia’s largest celebration of cultural diversity that has been especially created for workplaces of all shapes and sizes! We use food as a way of bringing people together to share, discover and learn about each other’s cultural heritage.

There are many ways for workplaces to participate in A Taste of Harmony, from encouraging staff to bring in food that reflects their cultural origins to share with their colleagues to more elaborate events. The key is bringing people together and creating a fun, informal way for colleagues to share their cultural heritage through food and discover more about their co-workers.

Workplaces are supported to run their activities with a fantastic array of downloadable resources. Watch our short video below to find out more about how to get involved!
