Christ Church Rio partners with local food movement Junto Local to host Chega Junto, a monthly food fair helping refugees and immigrants to develop small businesses and integrate into the local community.
The fair is usually held once a month on a Saturday – look out for up to date information about the next event via our website, or by signing up for our newsletter. Make a day of experiencing anything from Japanese yakkisoba and Syrian falafel to Dao tea, vegan sorbet and damasco juice. Junta Local also hosts musicians, artists and local vendors selling Brazilian treats. It is great as a drop-in or a whole day out – why not have brunch, lunch and an early supper?
Over the past few months, Chega Junto and their friends from Junta Local have become a regular part of our church life that Christ Church is really proud and happy to host here. Take a look at their instagram or Facebook, and see what others are saying about the fair here (Portuguese) and here (English).
