API-GBV Have You Eaten Yet?

May 30 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

Have You Eaten Yet? 🥣🥢🍽️ In honor of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we’re holding a community dialogue centered around food, culture, and care in AAPI communities! Join us on May 30 at 10am PT/1pm ET to be part of the discussion 🧡RSVP at the link in our bio💙

Event Description: In Asian/Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities, food is more than just fuel. It gathers people, bridges generations, empowers community, and teaches culture. Incorporating food that is culturally significant into programming can also help communities and people impacted by violence heal from trauma. However, many #AAPI people are left without access to ingredients and dishes that hold meaning for them. How can we, as agents in the movement to end violence, harness the incredible power of food to drive the change we are creating in our communities?

As we close out #APAHM, we hope that you will join us in this dialogue with three movement leaders from Banteay Srei, UTOPIA Washington, and Food4Good, who are incorporating food in innovate ways: cooking classes that bridge intergenerational communities, a farming program that sustains Indigenous traditions, and a catering business that builds economic security for refugees. We also hope to hear from participants about the inspiring ways they are honoring AAPI communities and survivors through celebration of food. Please feel free to enjoy your favorite dish or beverage during this virtual event!
