Nepali Canadian women are very shy and are not out-going as they are raised in a male dominated culture back in Nepal. Though they have more freedoms here in Canada, due to their old habits they tend to isolate themselves at home engaging on house chores. They leave the house only to go to work. The main goal of this event was to bring those women out of the house to participate in a community event. Most of the Nepali Canadian women are very good cook and they love to cook different cultural foods and share with others as well. This was a good opportunity for them to share their talents of cooking. The sharing of different foods connected them with entire community. In addition, there was a cultural program of singing, dancing and playing musical instruments. Music and food play important role to everybody’s life. There were games for the kids as well so the event was very inclusive.
