Slow Food East Bay’s Cultural Food Traditions: Syria with Old Damascus Fare

Sunday | October 20, 2019 | 5:00 pm — 8:00 pm

Sunday October 20th, Slow Food East Bay welcomes the Rawas family of Old Damascus Fare to share their delicious Syrian food and their story of resettlement in America. We’ll also touch upon the intersection of food and religion; food plays a role in ceremonies and observances the world over, so is a natural point of connection for those from different backgrounds. Our partner organization for the evening is 1951 Coffee Company, which provides job training and employment to refugees, asylees, and special immigrant visa holders while educating the surrounding community about refugee life and issues.  Join us for the food, and be nourished by the conversation!
