You are invited to a Welcome Neighbor STL drive-thru supper club event to support refugee families recently settled in St. Louis. Each year on World Refugee Day we host a fundraiser, but this year we will be celebrating with to-go boxes and will be bringing this 8-course Syrian and Moroccanmeal directly to your car.
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.
Drive up to pick up your to go dinner on Sunday, June 20th from 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm at STL Foodworks, 408 N Sarah Street, St. Louis, MO 63108. Our volunteers will bring your dinner directly to your car.
