You are invited to a Welcome Neighbor STL drive-thru supper club event to support families recently settled in St. Louis. These events help rebuild lives and rebuild hope for the cooks who share their talents and culture. The ripple effect of these events reaches the volunteers who assist, and the generous supporters who continually nurture this endeavor. Refugee cooks and WNSTL volunteers will prepare your meal and deliver a 7-course Moroccan/Syrian lunch directly to your car with a wide smile and heartfelt thank you.
These meals present an opportunity for immigrant families to share knowledge and skills unique to them. It is also an opportunity for us to get a glimpse into their culture. These fundraising efforts can set them on a path of greater independence and confidence in their lives here in in the USA. We are appreciative of our past and future supporters who feed our soul and we hope we return the favor.
