Lunch & Learn: Syrian Cooking
May 19 @ 12:00 pm CDT
Join us for an exciting event for Global Minnesota members, with an option for nonmembers to try out our new Lunch & Learn series.
Lunch & Learn continues with a virtual visit from Noor, a Syrian refugee joining us through our partnership with NaTakallam. Grab a recipe card and watch a cooking demonstration that provides “a taste of the Middle East” in the comfort of your own kitchen. Along the way, learn about Noor’s life, her work, and learn more about the beauty of her culture through food.
There will be time for a Q&A after the demonstration.
NaTakallam’s interactive guest-speaker sessions offer enriching conversations that equip participants with a more nuanced and empathetic global awareness. They leverage accessible technology to empower refugees: Each virtual session contributes directly to refugee livelihoods at a time when they might be cut off from the local labor market, in camps, or in other transit circumstances.
