On Saturday 20 January, the Food For Thought Network in Melbourne came together for a picnic and cutting of the vasilopita.
Those who attended were given insight to the organization and were informed about the Inaugural Global Women and Hellenism event in Ioannina, Greece, which will take place from September 2- 6 later this year.
The event was full of delicious food, great company and positive vibes where attendees were able to connect with one another and gain valuable insight and information about the Network’s future plans and projects.
In a post on Facebook, the Founder and Chair of the Network Varvara Athanasiou-Ioannou shared she was thankful for all who attended and contributed to the picnic.
“Thanks to my wonderful voluntary FFTN Board for organising this. Special acknowledgement to Maria Makrisand Maria Maikousis for co-ordinating this,” Ms Athanasiou-Ioannou said.
“Our appreciation to all that attended and brought food but above all their positive spirit and willingness to engage with all.”
Ms Athanasiou-Ioannou said she was also lucky enough to receive the coin in the vasilopita, which was donated by a member and friend of the Food For Thought Network.
“Hopefully it will be a stellar year for Food For Thought Network given our ambitious project the Inaugural Global Conference in Ioannina Greece,” she added.
