You are invited to a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club event to support refugee families recently settled in St. Louis. Enjoy food, conversation, and catching up with friends – old and new. From cultural exchange to just plain fun, look forward to a great evening.
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.
When you attend a Welcome Neighbor STL Supper Club, your meal will be prepared by immigrant neighbors who will share their culture and cooking skills by providing a table full of traditional food from their country of origin.
Suggested donation: $25 per person.
The event will be held on Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 6pm-8pm at Grace United Methodist Church 6199 Waterman Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63112. We hope you will come and join us!
