International Food Day - Proclamation
Slovenian Food Day in Washington DC -
Schools in Washington DC will be celebrating International Food Day on 10 May as part of an ongoing project by District of Columbia Public Schools. DC Mayor Muriel Bowser will proclaim this edition of the celebration Slovenian Food Day, which means that Slovenian dishes will be served in all DC public schools. A group of students from the OŠ Šturje elementary school in Ajdovščina, this year's winners of the Kuhnapato cookery competition, will prepare traditional Slovenian dishes for the occasion, together with their peers from the Harriet Tubman Elementary School in Washington, which is matched with the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Washington under the Embassy Adoption Program. The patron of the Kuhnapato project is the Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar.
