One of the many jobs that I had before becoming a dietitian was working as a Graduate Intern for the Office of Multicultural Affairs at a University.  During my time with OMA I learned that certain months were designated cultural diversity months.We would usually do at least one program that correlated with the diversity month. On my quest to read more I decided that once a month I will try to read a book about the culture who’s month is being honored. I think I will try to do the same thing with foods. So here is the breakdown:

January: There’s no designated culture.

February: Black History Month

March: Irish Heritage Month/Women’s History

April:Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May: Haitian Heritage Month

June: LGBT History Month

July:There’s no designated culture

August:There’s no designated culture.

September: Hispanic Heritage Month

October:Italian Heritage Month/Disability Awareness Month

November:Native American Heritage Month

December: There’s no designated culture

Now I know that there are A LOT of cultures that are missing from this list and some of the Heritages listed have many cultures within them. So this is just a guide. I’m excited to see how I can go about  LGBT history and disability awareness month. I have to get my thinking cap!

Is there any culture who’s foods you are interested in learning about that isn’t listed? Is there any culture that you would like to see highlighted? Feel free to send me a message and I will be glad to add it to my list.

Looking forward to these cultural excursions. Until next time…..
