Cooking and Eating with Eritrean Refugees through International Rescue Committee Partnership (Date Change)
April 1, 2012 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
The International Rescue Committee (rescue.org) is a non-profit that works in post-conflict development internationally and refugee resettlement in the US.
SPACIOUS is teaming up with them to provide simple shopping and cooking instruction for recently resettled Eritrean men who need those skills and who are eager to meet DC-area residents as they adjust to a vastly different life in a new country.
You don’t have to know how to cook yourself; there will be a skilled cook on each team. We’ll meet for a brief orientation, shop with a translator, receive general instructions as a group, cook in small groups in the men’s homes, and then gather to eat as a group.
Transportation from Silver Spring Metro (Red Line) will be arranged.
