A multicultural dinner was held on Saturday in conjunction with the end of Ramadan.
The holy month is observed by muslims who fast between sunrise and sunset and it is also a time to donate for charity.
Iftaar is the daily breaking of the fast during Ramadan and the SADAAT Foundation organises an annual dinner, which welcomes people from all faiths and backgrounds to celebrate with the Islamic community.
SADAAT Foundation is a community not-for-profit multicultural organisation based in Shepparton that exists to promote cultural and religious diversity and understanding in the region.
The dinner was founded on the basis that food plays an important role in most cultures and is a good basis to bring people together and fosters inter-religious understanding.
The event was held at the Sherbourne Terrace with traditional Indian and Turkish cuisine on offer.
