This Sunday’s Multicultural Food Festival extravaganza is free.


Staten Island, NY — Whether it’s a heart-shaped pizza or a carefully crafted meal, food can express sweet feelings on many levels. That message comes from the office of District Attorney Michael E. McMahon, who hosts the Multicultural Food Festival, his four-hour event aimed at conveying positive messages of unity and love.

On Sunday 26th February there will be a free festival from 1pm to 4pm at the Sacred Heart School gymnasium at 301 N. Burgher Ave. in West Brighton.

“We at Staten Islanders know that food is love,” McMahon said in a statement. There’s no better way to do it than with a multicultural food festival that brings together the many flavors and aromas of diverse culinary cultures. ”

He added: Celebrate Staten Island’s immigrant history, incredible diversity and variety of edible foods by partnering with the Staten Island Hate Crime Task Force in this exciting event. ”
