Join O, Miami and Refugee Assistance Alliance for a special edition of A Taste of Syria Supper Club, a dinner featuring poetry readings by some of the children of resettled Syrian families in South Florida.
As a consequence of the worst refugee crisis since War World II, dozens of Syrian families have resettled in South Florida. Due to their limited English language skills and their unfamiliarity with the culture, these families have struggled to find employment and adjust to life in our community.
A group of South Florida women of different backgrounds and religions decided to ease their struggle by hosting dinners as a means of bridging the cultural divide.
A Taste of Syria Supper Club is a fundraiser hosted by Refugee Assistance Alliance, a local nonprofit that helps Syrian families navigate life in the U.S. through English tutoring and community events. The Supper Club events are a testament to how a community can come together to support newcomers in need.
During the meal, which is made by the Syrian hosts, guests have the opportunity to chat with the chefs and their families. These events have proven time and again that food can often bridge the cultural divides that separate us and create enriching opportunities for collaboration.
