On July 25, Il Giardino degli Aromi Onlus association held a communal meal in Milan. The participants included more than ten Christians from the Morning Star Association, staff members of Il Giardino degli Aromi Onlus, and volunteers. It promoted friendship between the volunteers and Christians.
At 11:30 a.m., more than a dozen volunteers with different races, colors, and languages came to Il Giardino degli Aromi Onlus to cook the communal meal together with Christians from the Morning Star Association. The Christians patiently and joyfully taught volunteers how to make Chinese dumplings and spring rolls. People shared the food and exchanged food cultures from different countries in a harmonious and warm atmosphere, through which they got to know each other much better.
