HA News – Sept 2023

Vive Tu Cultura

Embrace Your Culture & Heritage

Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the vibrant tapestry of Hispanic cultures that enrich our community.

By participating in the diverse range of events and activities, you can actively engage with the Hispanic culture that’s woven into the fabric of our city. It’s not just about recognizing the past; it’s about building a more inclusive and harmonious future. This month-long celebration, running from September 15 to October 15, provides us with an incredible opportunity to learn, grow, and connect.

It’s a time to honor history, pay homage to the struggles and triumphs of Hispanic communities, and celebrate the diversity that makes Greenville a vibrant place to call home!

Chef Diego Campos brings Latin Flavors to the Heart of Greenville

“I love teaching about Latin products, flavors, and spices. Anything from Central or South America - I want to teach people about what we have to offer.”

Learn how Diego Campos is on a mission to introduce the diverse flavors of Latin America to Greenville and how he’s making an impact through his culinary creations. His mission goes beyond cooking; it’s about using food to bring people together and empower the Hispanic community in Greenville. Through his work at Camp (part of the Table 301 Restaurant Group), Diego not only tantalizes taste buds but also fosters a deeper appreciation for Latin cuisine, enriching the cultural tapestry of Greenville.
