Culturally-appropriate Food Drive for Local Refugees: Help stock the pantries of local refugee families! We’ll be collecting donations and playing parkside–making welcoming cards to accompany the food packages and reading books that tell the story of refugees.
Show support for our new neighbors by donating culturally-appropriate foods to the Refugee Community Partnership. The food donated will be distributed to local refugee families to assist them in nurishing their families as they navigate their new community and establish homes after resettlement.
To honor their heritage, we are asking that items donated be foods these famlies are accustomed to preparing and eating, including:
-dried chick peas
-dried fava beans
-Egyptian short grain rice
-Haal Magga chicken broth cubes
Drive through with donations or come play together at the community center park!
If you are unable to make it on the big day OR if you prefer to help families purchase fresh meats, vegetables, and fruits, participate in our Virtual Food Drive: www.gofundme.com/FeedHeartsFillPlates
