Come to the Table of Plenty

Why Share the Table?

People truly construct a sense of home when they have control over their daily activities which empower themselves and the people around them. Displaced persons are often cast into contexts characterized by uncertainty, unpredictability, and insecurity — yet, the everyday activities of cooking and communing represent a vital routine.

While traditional foods may be a marker of national celebration and remembrance, the daily meal — shared among newcomers and natives alike — is truly the binding thread of community & culture.
