Suppers With Love
Nothing unites people together more than sharing a meal.
Tiyya is designed to help both volunteers and newcomers connect with one another. We desire to foster a community that wants to learn more about this global crisis at a local level and give back to the society. We hope by providing programs and assistance to help families feel at home in America, we can host an effective cross-cultural exchange.
SUPPERS WITH LOVE is a volunteer-led initiative for recently arrived refugees and immigrants in California. Guests break bread with a new family in their home, helping to welcome them into the U.S. and build a stronger community of support. We have established trusted relationships with these families and they have generously agreed to open their homes to us. We help coordinate the dinners and provide a safe space to meet, converse and connect.
Through these monthly dinner gatherings, we hope to break stereotypes and misunderstandings, build a supportive community, and most importantly, let recently arrived families know we care. Help us welcome families properly by saying "Hello" over supper.
