This year the LACC is kicking off Hispanic Heritage month with a Fiesta Latina! Community members, local organizations, and government officials are invited to the LACC to celebrate Hispanic culture at this outdoor event. We will be blocking off the streets, and filling them with music and great food. Delaware political leaders will be invited to give speeches and proclaim Hispanic Heritage Month and there will be music, performances, and great food! LACC staff will also be at the event and will be able to share program information with the community. Funds raised during this event will support LACC Life Empowerment Programs which help individuals establish, or re-establish, self suficiency. Programs include, but are not limited to Financial Literacy, Workforce Development, Domestic Violence Support, Family Immigration Services, HIV Early Intervention Services, and a Food Closet.
Attended by more than 400 individuals each year, the Fiesta Latina showcases delicious Latin American cuisine, with donations from over 20 restaurants and dishes prepared by LACC staff, who prepare a dish typical of their native land. Join us on a culinary adventure replete with the sights, sounds, colors and flavors of Latin America here in Wilmington, Delaware!
