faith & Food: a religious guide to dietary requirements

The Queensland Faith Communities Council (QFCC) celebrates our wonderful and ever growing diversity and encourages all in the Sunshine State to build strong, respectful and inclusive communities. One very enjoyable way of doing this is by sharing food. However, as many cultural and religious traditions have certain dietary requirements, it can sometimes be tricky knowing what foods to serve.

Therefore QFCC has put together this little booklet. Of course, individuals within a tradition may adhere more or less strictly to their particular dietary requirements. If you know your guests well, it is a simple matter of asking them! This could lead to some very interesting conversations. QFCC Website: www.qfcc.org.au
