" While families feast to familial bonding and festivities, food also help foster friendship, facilitate familiarity, flank formalities and fulfill fellowships.  Yet food has forced interfaith friction and fracture due to fallacies, foolishness and fake news.  "

Food is one of the most important things in everyone’s life, regardless of race, language or religion. It has health, religious and social impacts and is a topic which is privy to every human, and every Singaporean, given that Singapore is known to be a food paradise. While food nourishes individuals, it is a powerful element that can bring communities together.

" Dialogues can help bridge and keep people connected, facilitate mutual respect and understanding, and incidentally, they can have misconceptions corrected. Additionally, cooperation and collaborations can help make communities more collective and hence, collected.  "

" Perhaps we need to move beyond the religious rhetoric and engage issues of extremism and exclusivism in a subtler manner, through practical and social approaches, rather than theological.  We need to continue finding ways to strengthen ourselves.  Failing which, these ugly and dangerous issues of extremism and exclusivism, if not addressed, will haunt us and rip apart our social fabric.

" Constantly emphasising on our commonalities can crucially help downplay differences, hence increasing appreciation for diversity, and just as importantly, reduce the risks of conflict. "

" Singapore is a multi-faith and racial country. In the community, it is always heartening to see neighbours of different races and faith celebrating festivals together or enjoying food of different cultures. At South East District, we want to heighten the interfaith and race awareness. We believe that by understanding the similarities within our differences, residents within a community will be able to appreciate one another better and thus, build a more integrated and socially-resilient community. This is critical given the increasing global influence and challenges. "
