The awarded was presented at the FTA annual conference, this year held in Atlanta on Feb. 2 and 3. Select International Tours & Cruises was recognized for its Nourish The Soul Program, which enables participants to celebrate their faith together, meet with locals and learn about the customs and cultures of the destination and, in the words of the Psalms, “taste and see the goodness of the Lord”. Edita Krunic, President of Select International explained how the program was conceptualized ” We offer this program which is part of our Faith and Food series in Italy and Holy Land for now. In Israel, this program not only lets Christians walk where Jesus walked, and pray where Jesus prayed, they get to explore Biblical cuisine by tasting the foods commonly eaten in Jesus’ time. The meals are prepared by Chefs for Peace, a Jerusalem based organization comprised of chefs of different faiths who understand the power of food to bring people together, and participants even get an opportunity to help prepare these unique meals.”
