SUPPERS WITH LOVE
Nothing unites people together more than sharing a meal.
SUPPERS WITH LOVE is a volunteer-led initiative for recently arrived refugee/immigrant families in California. Guests break bread with a refugee family in their home, helping to welcome them into the U.S. and build a stronger community of support. We have built 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 them properly by saying "Hello" over supper. Where
generosity, good health and blessings are served with love.
ONCE YOU RSVP for a dinner, you will be contacted by one of our volunteers, and assigned a family to share a dinner with along with rules of decorum and cultural expectations. We recommend groups of 2 - 3 couples per family to keep it intimate. Your group can bring a favorite dessert to share and welcome them properly to our community.
