Taste of Kosovo is April 5

A fundraising event for the Youth Exchange Students to Kosovo will be held at Willow Ridge from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on April 5.

Iowa Central Community College culinary students have planned a five-course meal with authentic Kosovar food. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at Hy-Vee.

A silent auction will also be held during the evening. All funds raised will support the youths traveling to Kosovo in July 2019. Kosovar youths will also travel to Iowa in June 2019.

This is the second year of Taste of Kosovo, which began in April 2018. A partnership between Gjakova, Kosovo, and Fort Dodge began in December 2016. In addition to the youth exchange, the partnership includes an art initiative between the two cities.
